Way back in August of 2007, when this blog was still Kittys Creations, I posted about this beautiful little cardigan. Both the cardi and my blog have experienced many transformations since then. Yet would you believe that this was the first time I wore this cardigan outside of the house? Even after my renovations, I was just never happy with the way this cardigan fit. Until I tried using a shawl pin to close it like this that is. Now, I think I will be wearing this frequently on chilly days. The merino yarn is soft and nice and warm.
This was my first “difficult” knit and it ended up being a really long time in the making. It feels so good to finally find a way to wear it. After I took these photos, I modified it a little more with buttons, so that the shawl pin is optional. You’ll see the mods tomorrow, because I ended up wearing this cardi two days in a row!
