FO: Featherweight Cardigan


Pattern: Featherweight Cardigan by Hannah Fettig
Yarn: Malabrigo Lace (3 skeins in colourway Vaa-only used a small amount of the 3rd skein)
Needle Size: 4mm/US 6
Size: Small

Another great pattern from Hannah Fettig, easy to knit and the end result is a wonderfully light weight spring/summer cardigan that can be worn anywhere. I again loved knitting with the Malabrigo Lace and was very happy with this colourway. Its a very dark green with small areas of blue, not the easiest colour to photograph inside (was a stormy day today so unfortunately no outdoor shots), but I think it will be versatile enough to dress up or down. In any case its a colour which the recipient, my Mum, can wear well. Hope she likes it!


With nothing else on my sticks I am now dying to CO for the Coraline sweater which I was going to wait until the new year so I could add it to my projects list for a new Ravelry group called 10 in 2010 (basically commit to knitting 10 projects of your choosing in 2010), but alas I don't think I can wait. Doesn't matter because I'm also taking part in the NaKniSweMoDo group (AKA National Knit a Sweater a Month Dodecathon...complete 12 adult size sweaters in one year) so I can add it to that list instead. My last years quota was five, so if I can top that I will be more than happy. So yes I plan to have a very productive 2010....

What are your plans for 2010?

Your cardigan looks great. It would be pleasant looking if you had shot it outdoors. Love to see my own feather weight handy work shortly.
