Today is the most perfectly lovely day in Portland. I spent the morning in full on spring cleaning mode, and then Boyfriend, Doggo, and I hit Forest Park for a mini hike/photo shoot. Introducing the Forest & Frill Cardigan:


Pattern: Forest & Frill Yarn: KnitPicks Wool of the Andes Bulky, held double for the knit body and single for the crochet edging… Clasp is from the Button Emporium here in Ptown.



This is officially the first non-scarf FO that I’ve been brave enough to wear to work… and I think it went over well! I like it, anyhow… Took a few tries to get it perfect. The body was pretty bunchy, but I managed to force it into submission, and the armholes have been re-crocheted a few times to get them to stop looking so little girl ruffly (is that how you spell ruffley? ruffly? I dunno). Anyhow, done and done.

Doggo wants me to also share with you the terrible thing that happened to him today:

What can I say? It’s muddy in them there woods.

    >I have to say that THAT is the prettiest sweater I think I've ever seen. I clicked on it from a "you might also like" link, and I'm so glad I did. You and your work are gorgeous!
