FO - Featherweight Cardigan
I finally got this off my needles after almost two months. My daughter will be graduating from high school next week, and her soccer schedule has been crazy. Plus, I proctored 12 AP exams over the course of two weeks...lots of sitting time but no knitting time!

Anyhoo, I present my first ever sweater...the Featherweight Cardigan. The pattern is not free, but you can find more info about it here.

I turned 40 the end of March. I took the day off and went on a yarn crawl. The hubster let me treat myself to yarn, and the Misti Alpaca Lace (Color #18) jumped into my arms (along with three or four skeins of other yarn ).



I used 115 grams (a little over one skein). This is lace yarn, so the knitting was S-L-O-W. I used size 4 needles, I think. If I had to do it over, I would go up to a 6.

I knit the ribbing on the cuffs, bottom, and collar and edging in a 1x1 rib after reading others' accounts of the stockinette curling.

On to the pictures!


















Thanks for looking, all!!
