Alright.  I finally finished 2 sweaters.

This first one has been sitting in my knitting box for almost two years, completely knitted.  The only thing I had to do was sew the side seems; even the lace neckline was already attached.  It took about an hour and a half to sew the side seams and weave in the ends.

Pattern: Lace Blouse by Jennie Atkinson

Yarn: Sandnes Garn Mandarin Petit (100% cotton)

This second cardigan I’ve been working on since May, although not continuously.  The pattern is from the summer 2013 issue of Vogue Knitting.  It came out really big, but I’m not sure what I was exactly expecting.  Yes I met gauge!… I guess I’m just little, especially when the smallest size they offer a pattern for is a S/M.  It’ll be best with super skinny jeans and boots this fall.

Pattern: Lace Striped Cardigan by Kazekobo

Yarn: Classic Elite Yarns Soft Linen

Oh yeah, I like succulents, too!  Hope these plants don’t die on me.

    Love the sweaters, of course. They are both gorgeous – and I am so envious, like always. Hey – you can always give the cardigan to me – I’m sure it will fit!!!
