The Hooray Cardigan, that is. Bringing the blog back to life with a brand new sweater. I found this pattern while browsing on Ravelry and was instantly intrigued by the charming rounded fronts. It makes the whole sweater seem softer and cozier. I worried that it would draw attention to my wide hips, though, so back in the queue it went, until the day Lindsay* showed up to work in a very similar sweater. I had to have it!
And this was a wonderful knit, in no small part because the yarn, Fleece Artist Blue-faced Leicester Aran, is dreamy. It’s squishy and soft and huggable. It slides across the needles and knits up quickly into a sweater you can not wait to wear. And the color! To be honest I’m already scheming to knit another sweater in this yarn; I really enjoyed it that much.
*Do you all know about Lindsay? I blogged about hiring her but the blog died shortly after and ate the post. Lindsay works here, doing most of our shipping and customer service and a lot of other things too. This place would not even function without her! If you’ve ever sent us an e-mail or placed an order, she’s probably helped you out.
