Mustard Seed Cardigan
I did it. I started another cardigan....for me! This is my mustard seed cardigan and if you look closely you can see that it is the Tea Leaves Cardigan pattern. I have had this pattern in my basket since Christmas. When I was in the LYS I immediately fell in love with this heathered shade of yellow and knew instantly what it would become. I just get a big kick out of how everything falls into place. The yarn is Ella Rae Classic and feels wonderful~ just enough spring. It is a little bit scratchy but I think a soak in wool wash will fix that right up.
What makes this a fab purchase is that even my husband loves the color. I tend to buy too many neutrals for his liking (like gray!) Believe me I was looking at gray in the store but I have that color in my yarn stash.
Right beside my beautiful yarn is a lovely bag my sister gave me over the weekend. Tucked inside is my featherweight cardigan project. It matches my knitting bag perfectly!!
So with all of my knitting projects, I am motivated to knit and get something off the needles :)
I don't know how your husband could help but love that yarn, it is just beautiful! I am having serious yarn envy! xxReplyDelete

How exciting! A cardigan of your own!! Love the bag.ReplyDelete
Mustard is big for the upcoming season... or so I am told. I love it!ReplyDelete
Good for you! I still have yet to tackle a sweater. Scared. ; )ReplyDelete
It is a beautiful color - funny, I tend to stay away from the yellow family. The name mustard fits this - reminds me of grey poupon or a honey mustard.ReplyDelete
Wool wash eh? You learn something everyday! Love your yarn and the new bag.ReplyDelete
