A Knit A Week

I know you have all been wondering,
so I will keep you in suspense no longer.
Yes! The Queen has been knitting.
Just not photographing very efficiently.

Here is Princess #1's Birthday sweater.
Yes, she turned 12.
No, I didn't document it on the blog.
Moving, apparently, is a time suck.
Who knew?! {grin}

She chose the Diana Cardigan, a pattern
from an Interweave Knits magazine.

This gorgeous young lady can't possibly be my baby!!
I swear I had her only yesterday . . .

The Details:

Pattern:  Diana Cardigan by Amy Miller

Yarns:  Three Irish Girls Cotton Rayon Sport
in the sweetmint color way for the main color.
And from the stash no less!!
I wish my photography skills could show off the 
beautiful sheen this yarn has--stunning.
in the sterling color way for the ruffles down the front
and on the sleeves

Verdict:  Gorgeous fit.  Fussy knit.  She loves the feel and shape.
We found some great vintage buttons on etsy
that really finish it off!!
