this is the annual mama cardi event, we are talking about. My Mom's birthday is today.
as last years cardi was kind of a bust (darn the knit picks superwash yarn, you suck), i am extra happy with the february lady sweater.
you can find the lady version of the famous elizabeth zimmerman's february baby sweater here:
find me on ravelry: bellevett, to see the details.
but one small detail, i used knit picks wool of the andes yarn. about 8 balls.
really, elizabeth zimmerman is the goddess of the knitting. I am totally obsessed obsessed obsessed with the lady. I recently procured a copy of the opinionated knitter.
you really need to own this book. really.
and these buttons came off of a vintage sweater that was rescued from the goodwill half off clearance section.
i like to include a little info on the sweater and the wash instructions. i also include a tiny little "soak", my wool wash of choice.
(the color is distorted in this pic for some reason. see color above.)
my only problem is that i desperately want a february lady sweater for myself now.
