Yummy Monday

Hi Knitters,
Good Monday morning to you. All I have to say is that every girl deserves to have some knitting fun. This is mine in Madeline Tosh in Tosh DK in the Burnished colorway. I bought my yarn here. The pattern is the Tea Leaves Cardigan.
best, susie

I love that sweater pattern and your color choice is beautiful!! What color is it? I love seeing the yoke pattern up close. Am anxious to see the completed sweater modeled by the knitter. :-)

Oops - just saw "Burnished" in your note. Should have known you wouldn't leave that out! :-)

Beautiful colorway! I am knitting Tea Leaves in Tosh Vermillion. I have made some notes regarding the sizing on my projects page if you are interested. The sleeves are a very tight fit.

I am in the process of building by blog site. Would you mind sharing some of your links with me? I would truely appreciate it.

P.S.- Your sweater is lovely. I love the colors and I enjoyed browsing.

Paula,
Thanks for the tip I will definitely consider that as I get to the sleeves. I don't like tight clothing at all so this is good to know.

Hi Contessa,
I am not sure what you are exactly asking but yes, you can use any links on your blog that I have on my blog. That's fine by me!
Have fun!

I want to knit that cardigan one day. Don't you just love the names Madelinetosh comes up with for its yarn? I just bought some silver fox for a bridal shawl.

BEAUTIFUL! I absolutely LOVE the colors in the yarn. I can't wait to see the finished sweater.

Wow, that colour is gorgeous (hi, first time commenting!). Love the photo too, really captures the fabric aspect. Yum!

I love that cardigan. I really want to start knitting one but I think I will have to wait till I'm done with the cedar leaf sawlette first. Since I am knitting through the itty bitty toy book on my blog every once in a while I need a brake from the toys and I knit something for myself. Thank you for sharing.

Amybel said...

Oh man, you're making it too!!!! I have got to get some of that yarn.

Jessica said...

Beautiful! Tea Leaves is in my queue too! Love that colorway!

I bought the Itty Bitty Toy book in January. I have spent most of the afternoon trying to find the Astrakhan in off -white to make the little lamb. There seems to be none of that yarn,in that color, anywhere.

Could you recommend a substitution for the Astrakhan? I really wanted to make the little lamb, he is so sweet.

Susan said...

BSV,
Many people have knit the lamb in lots of other yarns and posted the projects on Ravelry. I would look there. I have heard a couple of people have tried the Bernat Boucle but I have never worked in this yarn.

Unfortunately the Debbie Bliss yarn was discontinued.
