Knit while on vacation at Grand Canyon, the colors of this yarn are reminiscent of the desert and canyon landscape. The last time I used this pattern I made size medium, but I was never comfortable with the fit. It seemed too tight across the back and under the arms. After I lost that sweater while on vacation I decided to knit another in the same yarn, but sized for a better fit.

Pattern: Whisper Cardigan (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/whisper-cardigan)
Yarn: Knitpicks Shadow in Oregon Coast Heather

As usual, your knitting is impeccable! I can’t tell you how inspiring your knitting is!
Thanks for the extra notes (on your Rav project page) about how you made it a perfect fit!
I do like "the look" of yours best! A tad longer, a tad more room to breathe! Perfect!

I have a knitting buddy over at Rav who buys a lot of MadelineTosh Light (fingering) yarn.
Oh wow! A perfect yarn for this design! She's very petite, like you...and I totally see her in this adorable cardi! I linked her up!

Yes, the Canyon is wonderful -- a magical place. We spent several days hiking and backpacking and can't wait to go back!
