It’s finished. But the combination of this style and this colour is just too much to get accustomed to it that easily.
I found 8 skeins of this great wool in my hubby’s grandma’s stash. The yarn is quite thin, so I actually had to double-strand it for this pattern. Halfway through the pattern I was worried it wouldn’t be enough to finish the cardi. I even contacted Austermann to check whether they have anything similar just to find out that they haven’t been producing this silk and new wool mix for the past 20 years.
The pattern itself was quite easy to follow and I do like the stitch and the cables.
Hmmm…. I cannot quite make up my mind whether I like it or not.
