My Kitsap cardigan is finished!



Kitsap cardigan by Berroco knit with Berroco's yarn, Lodge in the color way Old Faithful.


The color transitions  in this yarn look especially beautiful in garter stitch, seen below on the
collar of this sweater:


Last summer I attended Vogue Knitting Live in Chicago, and had a class with Deborah Newton on seaming and finishing knitted garments. Her book, Finishing School, a Master Class for Knitters, has everything a knitter would need to know about finishing, and has helped bump up my skills in that department! Thanks to my daughter Kristen for gifting me with this book for Mother's Day this year :-).
