Silk cardigan

IMG_3186

This cardigan is knitted from the silk & merino purchased on the Blacksheep visits last summer. There is still enough left to knit a vest. It is a Sublime pattern, adjusted only slightly by making the moss stitch cuffs longer. It was started on MQs bamboo needles, but finished on the new symfonie circulars. As the symfonies looked so nice against the frog green yarn I used symfoine buttons.

The nearly completed project came to Italy as my second cardigan. As it was warm it wasn’t needed, but it got finished (last bit of second sleeve knitted) and then sewn up in the first few days of the holiday.
