At last…my Aislinn is finished and ready to be worn. It seems to have been a very long journey since I decided to knit this cardigan.
But my timing is uncharacteristically perfect. Over the last week the weather has started to hint at Autumn and yesterday, as we headed to the park for the last time before school starts again tomorrow, it was cool enough to wear her and snatch a few photos.
I’ll admit to not liking a single one of these photos, but even so I think these photos show what a beautiful cardigan this is and, more importantly, how well it fits. You’ll find my review about the knitting/fitting process here.
The yarn is Rown Tweed and whilst it is very pretty and very soft (although it has a whisper of scratchiness that means I’ll always wear this over a sleeve), I’m slightly wishful that I’d picked a crisper yarn with better stitch definition.
Still…I’ve worn this a couple of times over the last week and each time someone has commented on how lovely it is. It’s a dream to wear…as you’d imagine from a garment that actually fits…and is perfect to throw on as a jacket replacement when playing in the park. I do love it!
I can’t wait to make my next CustomFit garment. I’m not sure what it will be…I’ve lots of knitting and sewing ideas in my head at the moment. But I’m off to Yarndale at the end of the month so you know I’ll be buying some yarn there!
