I finished Cerisara more than a year ago and never blogged about it or updated the entry in Ravelry. I dropped by Twist Yarns in Manhattan Beach yesterday, in the hopes that KIP, knitting in public, would help me find the mojo to finish a Knit Swirl cardigan that had became very large and unwieldy. It worked.
It also gave me a chance to visit my cardigan, which is on display in the front of the store. Twist Yarns is open Wednesday-Saturday and the first Sunday of every month. That means you can stroke the Malabrigo silky merino (50/50 silk/merino) cardigan from 12-4 today.
Ravelled here (with construction details of interest to knitters).
@Steph A Yes, the sweater feels lovely, but it clings to my hips a bit. I need to line the bottom half of the sweater with some silk habutai to prevent the cling.
The truth is, I've made so many lovely clothes over the years, I need to clean out my closet. I sent two bags to Goodwill and gave 4 sweaters to an Australian blogger that visited me over the holidays. I also set aside a bag of clothes for a friend in Boulder. Baby steps.
I wonder if, at PR weekend SF, we can hold a fabric and book swap one evening? Hmm, that might happen if someone organized it.
