Yesterday, I finished blocking my Snowbird cardigan. I made one earlier, which I’ve been wearing all the time. I love Heidi Kirrmaier’s design, which is both clever and simple with beautiful details. It is knitted top-down in one piece, the main body in reverse stocking stitch, with faux seams. It has a lovely A-line and is long enough to keep my back nicely warm and toasty. Exactly what a girl needs now the first frost has arrived.
For this second Snowbird, I used Rowan’s Kid Classic in ‘nightly’, a rich, deep, midnight blue, one of my all time favourite colours.
The little pouch in the top picture is by Pamela Barsky and was brought back for me by my sister from New York. It reads I can live without a lot of things, but ice cream is not one of them and could have been custom made. I do looooove ice cream. Could probably happily survive on it for weeks.
I already have my eye on another one of the talented Heidi’s designs: the Maestro jacket. I just love the cut of this jacket, such a clever, clever construction. First though, I have to finish my Christmas knitting. But more on that later.
