Ready for FO Friday



Will wonders never cease , but this is the second consecutive week that I have a FO to show !  It will probably never happen again . I'm so happy with this knit . The yarn , Zara  an extra fine merino , is absolute delight to work with  .  I learned more about sweater construction and design just from the little things like how the increases in the collar gave a much better fit and more finished look to the cardigan . My mattress stitch skills are improving with practice . It is a simple , classic design which I know that I'll knit again . I've already bought more of this yarn in a gorgeous blue to knit one for my grandson Mason .

In the mean time there's a hat to go with this cardi in the works , Mike's socks and a newly cast on vest for Mason . So many projects so little time ...

PS - There's a whole lot more FO over at Tamis Amis .
Have a wonderful weekend !

I have that yarn in blue, green and a rose color. Hmm, I have a new nephew appearing in Jan. May have to see what I can do with the green and blue. Cute cardi!!
