Celebration Cardigan

Celebration Retro 004
Originally uploaded by kniterella

While hunting for the perfect color of Abundance to use for my mom's birthday sweater, Chris and I decided to try a double strand of Celebration.

The Retro Cardigan pattern has just been altered for a variety of sizes and I wanted to test knit a larger size for my mom.

The Celebration was very bulky while wet blocking, but dried to perfection. The bamboo in this yarn should help keep the 'heat' down when worn.

I will get some modeled photos as soon as I can see my mom - her birthday is Nov 23rd!

I also finished my first sock from the Rockin' Sock Club. The colors of the yarn coupled with the lacy anklet pattern were irresistible. I worked on it diligently at the Socktoberfest yesterday.

The cardigan is lovely, your mom will love it! I've seen these socks before, and think they look cute.
