|What skinny arms you've got, Bettie!|
I say these things, and it comes back to haunt me... I probably won't finish it this month after saying that!
But seriously, it has been a very pleasant and speedy (for me) knit. I am knitting the yoke.
I'm not discussing the Portti Sukat socks. I'm not in the mood (and I lost the needles somewhere...)
You will have gathered that I would like another cardigan. My notebook-of-all-knowledge informs me that I disposed of my shop-bought black cardigan in March 2011 and did not replace it. But I am a shocking prevaricator. And a liar to boot... because when I said I only had three cardigans to my name I didn't count my vintage twinset-cardi, Betty Jean or Manon.
What's that about, eh, Roo?
Maybe what I was trying to say was that I felt the need for another spring / summer-appropriate cardigan. While I have sufficient Albayarn in the colourway Crow (black) to knit a vintage-pattern cardi, it would not be terribly spring-like. I am thinking yellow. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know.
A UK-sourced yarn would be a better ethical choice (no air miles). Maybe something from John Arbon? (4 x £8.95 = £36)
