UPO Mondays: Whisper
If a project isn’t finished until it’s photographed, I have even more UFOs than I thought! Now that the weather is getting nicer, I’m hoping to get Sweetie to take some photos for me. We snuck up the shore yesterday and snapped a few shots of my Whisper cardigan in winds that felt nothing like a whisper.
I just love this cardigan, and now that I’ve taken photos I think I’ll get a lot of wear out of it. It’s a great little coverup for this transitional weather.
Pattern: Hannah Fettig’s Whisper Cardigan in the Spring 2009 Interweave Knits
Yarn: 1.6 balls of Misti Alpaca Lace in Sea Mist (#7120)
Needles: US 0, 2, and 3 Addi Turbos
Made for: me
Timeline: 10 July 2009 – 10 September 2011
Modifications: not really a mod, but I had to go way down in needle size to achieve gauge
Worst Part: working the body–the fun stuff was over, and it felt like it went on for a long time
Best Part: a cute and comfortable cardigan for my wardrobe
A few non-knitting notes:
- My camera was out of batteries so we took these using my iPad (Sweetie loved the big screen to frame the shots) and I put them together using the free app Picture Frames HD.
- My hair is getting pretty long, so I’m trying to learn how to do things with it. This style is the product of a Youtube tutorial–if you have any easy favorites, let me know!
