Kelp Cardigan


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

  2. I'm itching to buy some Quince and Co. yarn but I have to restrain myself. I'm anxious to see something knit from that book since I just got it too. Happy Knitting Karen!

  3. I love Tern, it's a favorite here too. And that color?! Oh Karen, it is going to be so beautiful on you with your coloring. I admire your 'knitting spirit' and can't wait to see how it turns out.

  4. What lovely yarn! Can't wait to see it all knit up. I love that book too - I've only every checked it out of the library (repeatedly), perhaps it is time to buy my own copy :)
