I’ve just completed the most stunning little cardigan. It’s covered with cables and bobbles, with a lace edge. I’ve really enjoyed making it (it’s at A Good Yarn at the moment, as a shop sample, if anyone wants to see it in the flesh)
The one word I keep of thinking of is “heirloom”. It’s one of those special pieces of knitting.
The pattern is Lace Edged Cardigan by Debbie Bliss and it’s from the Celebrating Family pattern book.
The original was done in Debbie Bliss Eco Baby but mine is done in Baby Cashmerino. The yarn is really lovely to work with and blocks really well. Here's my Ravelry project page
I did a little experiment while making this. I made both of the sleeves and blocked just one of them. Can you spot which one?
It really does make a huge difference to your knitting – so if you’re not a convert to blocking yet….
By the way, I did block the other before I was finished!
The back is just as gorgeous as the front.
