After almost two months of crazy deadlines, I was eager to knit something at a relaxed pace. Since my birthday was coming up, I thought I ought to make myself something. I chose this design, because I thought it might go well with my dresses.

That’s the story of my life in two words. I’m sure it happens to everyone now and then. I feel like this, oh, about 80% of the time.
During breaks from the Yarrow Ribbed socks, I resumed the Cropped Cardigan project. I feel so bad for neglecting it (and for far longer than I [...]
