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 :)


  1. I don't know how your husband could help but love that yarn, it is just beautiful! I am having serious yarn envy! xx

  2. Lovely yarn choice! Makes me like yellow a bit more. :)

  3. is mustard seed not the greatest color?

  4. Gorgeous! I love it when knitting comes together like this. The color is amazing. I know this cardigan will be beautiful.

  5. How exciting! A cardigan of your own!! Love the bag.

  6. Mustard is big for the upcoming season... or so I am told. I love it!

  7. Good for you! I still have yet to tackle a sweater. Scared. ; )

  8. 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.

  9. Wool wash eh? You learn something everyday! Love your yarn and the new bag.

    Blessings, Debbie
