Another Cardi

I have run out of storage space - but that isn't going to stop me knitting more cardis and sweaters.

Here's the latest contribution to my storage crisis.

The pattern is Peace by Kim Hargreaves from her book Misty. Full details of yarn etc can be seen on my Ravelry page here.

The cardi is beautifully fitted - shaped nicely at the waist.

The only modification I made was to make the sleeves full length rather than three quarter length.

The yarn I used was picked up cheaply in a charity shop in Bracknell.

Beige isn't a colour I would normally choose but this one is subtly shaded with blues and greys.

I have, as promised, returned to my mohair cardi. I am about half way up the first sleeve and should certainly have this cardi finished by the end of next week. completing the written pattern may take a bit longer.

Racing ahead, I have already planned what's to be cast on next, another hat, another sweater and, yes, another cardi.

Grace and I went into Liverpool yesterday and bought yet more yarn. I now have so much yarn stock piled up and I do feel guilty. No more buying - just knit, knit, knit!
