Basic Chic

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!
