This is the best I could do with an auto-timer and a dark day in Nashville. I love the cardigan, though, and have worn it for the past couple of days straight. It’s a perfect weight for Nashville: the wool makes it warm but the shorter sleeves and open front make it very wearable in relatively mild weather. Cascade 220 is the best, as far as I’m concerned: no pilling yet (and I’ve been wearing the heck out this cardigan), great stitch definition, minimal stretching. And it’s affordable. In a million colors.
I’ll count my ball bands and put the details up on Ravelry soon.
I’m also attempting the Rooster’s strategy today: fake it to make it. As I understand it, awesome boots are essential. So since these new red ones (on sale!) arrived yesterday, it seemed a shame to leave them in the box. And with a head cold that won’t quit, getting out of the house was my only option for getting anything done.
What do you think, dear internet? Do these make me look stumpy? I love them and will be keeping them (so comfy for walking!), but I nonetheless suspect that they bring out the stump. Not that it takes much.
