Harriet


I finally got those last few balls of yarn I needed and finished the latest design: Harriet, an allover cable cardigan with contrast collar. The fantastic photo below is by Stephanie Gage, who in addition to her mad skillz behind the lens is also a talented fiber artist.

I got so antsy waiting for the yarn to come in that I knitted a whole other Harriet for my pal Jene (b.k.a. "T-Bone"), which is collarless but, I think, equally pretty in this strawberry-ice-cream pink. They're both made with Sublime cashmere/merino/silk, which is absolutely delicious yarn to work with--highly recommended for cushiness, color, and shine.


I'm finishing up the math for all the in-between sizes now, and will probably have the pattern ready for sale in the next week or so. The final version of the pattern will include instructions for both neckline variations, in case you're wondering...

Dang, Ribeye, that contrast color is smashing. Kinda makes me want to ask you to knit me up a whole 'nother one. I LOVE the Harriet sweater. I think everyone will enjoy the pattern as well as the final product. Oh, and congratulations to the nth on that Knitty score. It is the first, but it won't be the last.

That's the sixth floor of the PCL at UT! Do you work at the UT library? I'm a student worker in ILS in the basement. I'm adding that pattern to my queue, and possibly bumping it up, because it is way cute.
