Cropped cardi again!!!


Will it bore you to tears to see the same garment? Quit snivelin', sunshine! Here's the second Cropped Cardi of the month....well, actually, it's the third one, but number two was mercilessly auf'd for fug. I like this pattern-it's easy, doesn't take too much yarn, and DD needs stuff from the wardrobe fairy. I like patterns that take less than 500 yards-working on them is like eating 'tater chips. It's hard to get bored doing a jiffy project. If anyone in blogland has any quick garment suggestions, I'd like to hear from you! (no scarves or hats-we don't generally need them!) DD probably doesn't want THREE of the same garment.
This is Skacel Favola that's resided at Betsy's Yarn Mountain Home for Wayward Yarn for at least two years. I have another sweater's worth of it in this colorway, which is gorgeous, but not for me. It has a thin rayon filament that changes from peach to celery to tan to raisin. I tried to ditch it at a yarn swap last spring, because I thought I'd never use it-but now I am glad I followed my "cheapskate with good taste" yarn-buying heart. I've got more in a different colorway that I am hogging for myself. I got this stuff at Herrschner's at least three years ago, so it's time for it to grow up and be something, right? It's perfectly nice stuff, a little stiff, but not scratchy.

puuurrrfect yarn for the project. I like top down projects too, they always seem to go so quickly. that fabric will look great and go with so many things. hmm...looks like a visit to the top down cropped cardi pattern book is in order. knit on!

Betsy it looks really great. Perfect for a young woman's work wardrobe. I love the color and the pattern. DD must be happy with all the new stuff heading her way :-)

So cute bets. What's the blue waste yarn for? (enquiring minds)
