My First Sweater is off the Needles!!

Ta-da!!  My Effortless Cardigan in Madelinetosh DK Bloomsbury is done! I got the last skein in the mail this week and only needed three rows of the ribbing and a bind off.  I still need to weave the ends and block it.  The fronts are supposed to hang in a waterfall effect, but I saw some made the front panels a little shorter and maybe I should have done that.  It is very snuggly and now all I need is some cool fall weather to wear it.

The Little Black Shrug is not going as well......not a difficult pattern, but I have such a hard time seeing the stitches in black.  I have been using lifelines which really help, but seriously, this is SO frustrating!!!


  1. That blue is a great color on you!

  2. It seems like waterfall panels are really in now! Love the color. And I agree, black is tough to work with.
