Olivia finished

Here it is at last, my lovely mohair cardi.


I'm really pleased with the styling of the cardi. It is just what I had in mind when I originally drew up the design. The buttons make it extra special.

The yarn wasn't very pleasant to knit with - Sublime angora merino - it shed all the time and the fibres kept getting up my nose - but it is soooo soft and gorgeous to wear. A number of other people who have used this yarn have said that it settles down once it is knitted up - so I'm quite prepared to forgive it.

Unfortunately the yarn is now discontinued, but I do have a number of balls in pink in my stash

Full details of the finished project can be seen on my Ravelry page here.

The pattern for this cardi will follow in the next post.
