A journey of discovery with fiber and fabric -- and a cute little dog, too.

Somehow, with all the strange weather we've been having -- hot, cold, hurricanes, etc. I never showed the latest cardi. It's turned cold again, but too cold to go outdoors for a modeled shot. So, here it is hanging.
Pattern is from Chic Knits -- the Basic Chic V-Neck Cardi. Yarn is vintage stash - Tahki Donegal Tweed, 100% wool, 183 yards/167 m per 100 g skein.
I like it well enough, but I think I didn't do the yarn justice with such a plain pattern. Somehow such a rustic, tweedy yarn cries out for cables. Still, it will be a useful piece, and I'm happy to have made a teeny wee dent in the stash. Onward!
