Nonsmoking Cardi

I finished the nonsmoking cardi.  It makes me want to sit in front of a fire, petting the dog, drinking cocoa, and reading a British mystery.

#17 Cable/Lace Cardigan from Vogue Knitting Early Fall 2010 in Patons classic wool, royal purple colorway

Sadly, I have no fireplace, and, even if I did, it's supposed to be 87 degrees here today.  Still.

It's a bit frumpy, but I love it anyway.  I think it will look nice with black dress pants and perhaps a black shirt, but I wasn't willing to change for the photos.  (I'm wearing shorts in those pictures.  87 degrees.)

I've moved on to a sweater I'm knitting for a friend.  The lace pattern and I are having words at the moment, so it's nice to take a break and post pictures of something that reminds me that I can knit.


  1. OMG--that is gorgeous! I am passing up food posts to stop in whenever you post a finished knit! I am heading out in the HEAT (upper eighties here today) to my yarn store today! You really did a nice job with this and I don't recall going nuts over any project in this particular Vogue issue but plan to revisit it pronto! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Still so amazed by your talent! Jealous.

  3. Another beautiful creation! Thanks for sharing.
