This trend isn't good but...

I blogged about the Vogue top here but it ended up...

HERE! (that's not me but I know how she feels)
Two items for the year, both trashed.  I told my friend they were Wadders (not the way you'd typically say the word but think wadded up and thrown away).  Sad but true.  Now I have no desire to sew at all. 

On the other hand, my knitting is taking off.  I'm better than 1/3 of the way done with the cardigan and am planning other projects.

Nashua Handknits has some great designs:

This design is part of the Isabella collect.  I love the detail.  It's called Jasmine.  The color definitely doesn't look good on me but I thought maybe a nice navy or lavender for the Spring???

Next item to consider is another design by Nashua-
This design is called Chestnut.  (Photo courtesy Nashua  I have a favorite acrylic cardigan that is toasty warm but sadly falling apart and it is very similar to this design.  I would probably attempt to change the collar and make it without a closure.  Any suggestions?

  1. Nooooo. Make it exactly as it is. The shawl collar is so elegant.
    Make sure the yarn is not scratchy otherwise the shawl collar will drive you crazy.
    Great sweater.
