|yarn: cascade 220 heathers in colowary "aliki beach/sand"|
|pattern: levenwick by gudrun johnston for brooklyn tweed wool people vol. 1|
i've got the collar for my levenwick on the go and my gauge swatch was perfect for the pattern! yippee! that never happens to me!!! can i just say i love the technical parts of levenwick? so many fun things to do for this cardi! the collar is just plain fun, the reverse stockinette is a real hoot in my books (i'm digging the look and feel of it), i already learned the invisible purl increase, and after get to do many a more fun things to keep this gal interested. thank you gudrun johnston - you. are. awesome.
as for my yarn choice - it's not your average summer yarn. it's not linen (though i do recommend making summer clothes in linen, it really softens up with wear and washing) and it's not cotton but cascade 220 heathers is a favorite of mine and with my house on a budget being able to make a cardi for about $45 is a huge coup in my books! can't beat the price! i also love how this yarn feels after blocking. it's definitely a great workhorse for this type of cardigan. it mimics the rustic quality of brooklyn tweed yarns with it's strength yet ability to still drape nicely.
