Spindrift


Spindrift Cardigan by Cecily Glowik MacDonald
More info on my Ravelry Project Page

My latest sweater!  I can not tell you how pleased I am with this cardigan.  I'm so glad I stumbled upon it while showing my husband another sweater I was planning to knit.  So plans were changed and I started on this one instead. I might be able to stop wearing my Aidez long enough to wash it. :)

Pockets!

5+ inch garter collar!


Knit in Quince & Co's Osprey in the Frost color way.  Osprey is an Aran weight with a softness you have to feel.  It is so nice next to the skin, none of the itchy-ness that most of the time accompanies wool.  Almost a light cottony feel to it.  The forst color is exactly what you imagine when you think of your frost covered windshield, slightly gray, slightly white.


While I'm not 100% with these photos, I hope that they convey to cozy, comfy factor of this knit!

And no worries, while I set this aside to finish my first pair of socks for the Business Casual KAL, as soon as I completed this sweater I cast on for the top secret pair No. 2!  I'm knitting these in Plucky Knitter Primo Fingering, a cashmere/merino/nylon blend.  I have one sock completed and I'm working on the second.
