Firstly I have to thank you for the comments and suggestions about the Short-Row Heels for my socks. I have come to the conclusion that this is not the heel for me (and plenty of others too!). It has been frogged, and I've started started an ordinary heel flap heel.
As promised, here is my second All Seasons Cardi (it's the fifth one down). I really love it! The yarn is gorgeous, it's Fyberspates Scrumptious 4ply Sport - 45% silk, 55% merino. I can't tell you how lovely this is to work with. I used about 1 1/2 skeins, which I bought in I knit in February.
The only mod I made was to shorten it a bit by working 4 instead of 6 stocking stitch rows before the Front Ties, and work 4 instead of 8 stocking stitch rows before the 4 garter stitch rows at the end.
I used a UK Treble crochet stitch for the edging - above is the inside of the back of the neck, below is a sleeve.
Unlike No1, I did do the garter stitch on the body, and it doesn't curl! Yey!!
I wore it to work on Friday with my purple Ginger skirt.
I've just realised I didn't post any blocked and properly finished photos of the first one.
It's looking a bit crumpled because it's been getting plenty of wear. I can definately see me making more of these!
Have a great week,
