Yarn Along


I have been trying to make time for knitting, even if it's just a row a day. I am so excited to be knitting  a Golden Wheat Cardigan by Veera Välimäki. I have a bit of an obsession with the colour green & well I love cardigans. I haven't read a novel in a last couple weeks but I have been looking through some magazines I love.

Many thanks to Ginny of Small Things for hosting this weekly yarn along.

Veera Valimaki is my favourite pattern designer - I just love her shawls more thank anything I've ever made. I can't wait to see how your piece turns out!

What a beatiful cardigan. I popped over to look at the pattern and love the neckline of this and the off center front. I think it will look lovely in green.
Happy Yarn Along.

I like many many of Veera's patterns. Your yarn is wonderful. You say green, but it looks more blue-ish. Gorgeous.
