FINALLY---FO's Part II
This is my oldest FO--My Maggie Jackson "Ballinadee Cardi" from Maggie's Ireland I finished it a year ago just in time to wear it to my Step-daughters graduation from VCU.
I love this sweater but the linen has stretched and it feels a little big now!
This is my Oat Couture--Celtic Cardigan
LOVE IT! I wore it a lot this past winter.
And now just what you've all been waiting for-----(No--not you Lammi)
The Moorish Sweater
Notice the postcard--this came from my Secret Pal, the picture was taken by a friend of hers at a Textile show. BEAUTIFUL!
And now this...Stash Busting
I've had this Biwa mercerized pearl cotton from Crystal Palace for 23 years (you wouldn't believe my stash)! Since I can't stand the thought of touching wool of any sort and I can't buy any fiber until I recover from this "Month of Celebrations" I though I'd ask for some advice--I have 558 yds, what should I make? This is one thought. I may come up a little short but this pattern is knit from the top down--I could add something at the bottom if necessary. Anybody out there have any other ideas--please leave me a comment with your suggestion!
