In the midst of the hustle and bustle, I got a glimmer of beautiful natural light streaming into my new craft room. It only lasted a few minutes, but I managed to grab pictures of the my Driven cardi that only took me, oh, about a year and half to finish. Now, that it's done though, I'm thoroughly smitten!
Designer: Veera Valimaki
Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted
Colorway: Simply Taupe

Modeled by: Pier 1 dress form named Frenchi (She came with that name and it's stuck!)
What a true pleasure this cardi is! The yarn I love, a classic go to for me. The pattern is brilliant, a given with designer Veera. And, we don't even need to talk about how pretty this taupe is, a perfect neutral shade with a subtle lavender haze. The only reason it took me so long to finish it was the fact that it had two sleeves. I realize that all the sweaters I knit have a pair of sleeves, but some sleeves just get to me more than others and some sweaters end up going into hibernation, deep hibernation. I'm sure I'm not the only one out there… please someone confirm that I am not the only crazy one who stops a cardi with 30 or so rounds of the second sleeve left to go and waits a year or two to finish it. No? Only me. At least my non knitting friends are clueless to my bad knitting habits.
Hugs & stitches from my craft room to you! Now wish me luck, because I'm about to go bake a cake!
