Vignette: My First Sweater
I've finished my first (adult) sweater! I fell in love with this Vignette pattern by Amy Herzog as soon as I saw it in Knitty. She describes it as "curvy and just a touch retro" and I totally agree.
I love the classic feel of the pattern, but that it also has the fun, but easy to remember, lace and rib pattern on the front as well as along the shoulder.
If you want more of the "knitting gritty" you can find it in my Ravelry project notes. I'm so excited to have a new cardigan for work and to take a huge chunk out of my yarn stash!
Before I started this project, I made this super simple row counter bracelet to help keep track of repeats. It's the best row counter I've ever tried.
As happy as I am to have this sweater finished, I'm itching to cast on something new! I'm thinking about a featherweight shawl in fuzzy mohair.
