I have only finished off two lots of yarn out of the big chest. These little baby janes sure didn't take much. But sometimes, when all you have are small bits, it's nice to be able to use them up. And I had a bit of pink to make some flowers. Not sure if I like the look of an attached flower as much as an embroudered one. That's for next time. I'm not picking it out and doing it over.
This sweet thing is my Cedar Cardi. The pattern is Demne designed by Anne Cholewa. Knitting this tiny garment made me feel like an engineer for Lilliputians. I have never encountered so much technique in a one small project before. A sideways knit should be relatively simple. And this one was - as long as you followed the instructions. To the letter. Thinking outside the box became worrisome so I stopped. Of course, the dire warnings to follow the directions didn't encourage much straying from the path, either. This winding path took much longer to walk than usual, too.
But, kvetching aside, I think it turned out nicely. The color is the exact shade of the cedars growing all around me. Now I'm off to finish a little vest - more next week.
