I did manage to knit a couple of things in March, but I didn't get around to posting about them until April. It hasn't stopped raining long enough for me to take a photo, but that's pretty much the norm for this time of year. So here is Caramel, my grey cardigan to match the grey weather we've been having. I am pretty happy with it, and it's going to be something I wear a lot.
(I'll even throw in a picture with head attached today.)
Here's the back. I liked the thinner stripes on some of the ones I've seen online, so that's what I did. The Berroco Alpaca Light worked just fine for this garment.
I also finally decided what to knit for the March Madness challenge hosted by Knitting Blooms on her podcast. I did start a scarf on size US 2 needles, but it wasn't grabbing me, so with a week to spare I chose this monster, a free pattern on Ravelry called Gotta Love Me Monster, for which I could use the yarn doubled. One thing I noticed was that the yarn wasn't holding up to frogging. It became furry, and I didn't think it was going to wear that well for a garment or accessory. "Monsty" will last long enough to be loved and played with. He gets taken to bed every night. . . so a happy ending for the yarn and the toy.
Moonbeam is on the right. Originally knitted in Linen Drape (dubbed by some Linen Droop), I'm using Classic Elite Soft Linen from my stash. Although I did have to track down two more balls in my color on eBay to be sure I don't run out. I'm nearly done with the front and it's going well.
What's on your needles for spring or summer?
