Yesterday afternoon I started a cardigan in fingering weight wool, Quince and Co's Tern which I have knit with before for this cardigan. I've been wearing this cardigan a lot through the winter and I love how if feels. Last Christmas (2012) I received seven skeins of Tern in the kelp colorway from my husband (how did he know?) as a gift and it has been sitting in my basket waiting for me. On a whim, I wound two skeins yesterday, already dreaming of THE cardigan for this winter.
I adore the color and believe this will be a sweater to wear through many seasons because of the wool silk blend. The yarn has spring, lovely depth of color dyeing and a beautiful subtle sheen.
I chose the Ann Budd book of Top Down Sweaters for my guidance. I've decided on a raglan shaping and as I knit this sweater, I'll add a few design elements here and there as the knitting spirit inspires me. Ravelry page is here
