On the needles: Wispy Cardigan

Hi guys!

First things first. Yesterday was my last exam. Which means... I finished school!!! I am done!!! Finally, after 5 years of studying at University, I can now say that I am a graduated student, and that I have 3 diplomas: one minor in translation, one minor in German studies and one major in Linguistic. Hello world, here I come.

And now something more title related, my Wispy cardigan. Oh, how much do I love it! Malabrigo lace, stockinette stitch, ingenious shaping... It is really a pleasure to knit. Yes, lace weight sweaters can be scary, but this yarn is a bijou and all that Stockinette stitch keep it oh so simple.



I was planning on bringing it on our 3 weeks vacation in Europe, but I guess I'll have to find another project... I'll have it finish way before we head to France!

Don't forget to participate to my "Guess which notebook I bought" giveaway! I thought my notebook would be in the mail by now, but no... still waiting... so participate!

D'une traductrice-tricoteuse à une autre : toutes mes félicitations!

Ce Wispy m'a l'air tout à fait sublime avec la Malabrigo dans cette couleur!

Loulek said...

Superbe !

Tu verras, la malabrigo lace nécessite des soins en douceur car ça bouloche un peu. Par contre c'est vraiment agréable à porter à même la peau !

Si jamais tu passes par la Normandie lors de ton voyage, ça pourrait être sympa de se boire un petit café dans un troquet !

Bonne continuation avec ton joli gilet !

Congrats to being finished! The hard real life starts now. So enjoy your trip! So far this spring is lovely over here and everything is in full bloom.

Don't bring too much knitting because you will definitely land in a yarn shop and buy some yarn. I always think I can resist but then the little devil says that one skein can't be too much.

I am knitting my travel shawl out of some Alpaca I got from my aunt which isn't labeled and was sitting in a big box at her house for years.

I'm totally going to follow your blog too. I like everything so far!
