I just got back from a last minute trip to Montana to see my best friend. For the first time ever we started a knitting project together. We're both making a cardigan but sort of winging the pattern, trying to do something with a custom fit. It's so cool to see how we both come at the same thing from totally different angles. I've been kind of into black and white marled sweaters lately (top photo: me trying on cardigan at Madewell, bottom photo: cardigan from J.Crew), so I bought this yarn at Purl Soho in "Penguin". I'm going for something completely cuddly, soft, and cozy that I can wear over t-shirts. I already know that I'll never get rid of this cardigan (even if it ends up less than perfect) because it holds such special memories for me.
By the way, when I posted about selling my hand-knitted sweaters on eBay, my mom made her first blog comment ever! She wanted to buy the sweaters herself to keep them in the family. How sweet is that? Unfortunately I had already sold them.
