FO’s for 2013 – Bobble Cardigan

December 29, 2013

Bobble SweaterThis is how far behind I am!!  I finished this sweater in the summer, I believe around July.  I did manage to get photos the end of the summer, and now have finally uploaded them.  First of all, pluses and minuses of this sweater.  Plus: I love this pattern and the yarn.  Minus: ran out of yarn on the sleeves so instead of the 3/4 ones I wanted they are 1/2.  The pattern is vintage, it was my Grandmother’s.  I have a sweater that she made from this pattern and I have always loved it, and I still wear it’s acrylic beige loveliness.  It is the perfect length, and the seamed shoulders fit me well, and don’t fall off me when open like a raglan sleeve seems to.  The yarn is Jubilee Alpaca from Saskatoon, raised, spun and sold locally.  It is a natural cream colour that I love, and I probably can get more of it when I get around to calling the store.  After all, animals don’t change their natural colour that much do they?  I knit the sleeves top down so that I could lengthen them if I ever got more yarn.  I was also not sure how long the sleeves would end up being, and using this method I was able to get as long a sleeve as possible from the yarn.  Have you noticed all the lovely bobbles up the front panels?  I know, they are so adorable.  Bobble, bobble, bobbly.

I have a few more FO’s to show off for the year, my stash to upload and count, Christmas presents to show off, and some New Year’s resolutions to discuss soon.  Yeah!
