Valley Cardigan



Please oh please ignore the orange pants.....Yes I am officially done with this cardigan.  It is in the laundry room drying right now.  The photos were taken last night before blocking.  I was quite pleased with the sweater until I soaked it.  My goodness, you would not believe the amount of dye that washed out of that sweater.  That is a concern and I am hoping that when I wear it shirts or tanks do not become red.  My other concern was the fiber that fluffed off of it when I was wringing (probably a no-no for cashmere).  So I must remember to handle it gently.  I think the next time I wash it I will spin it in the washer instead of wringing to get the water out.  So maybe there will be more photos, maybe not.  

Once it is dry I will put it on my sweater shelf and will have something new to wear in the fall.  How cool is that?

  3. Hooray!!! It looks just great.
    For the bleeding you could add a
    few teaspoons of vinegar to the water
    to help 'set' the color.
    Have a beautiful day.
