I'm drawn to the sea - sun, salt and water. I'm longing to feel the brisk summer breeze on my face. Even though we live almost by the sea, I still want more. I've been reading The Summer Book by Tove Jansson, once again, and the urge to live on an tiny island is really getting me.
No, we're not moving. I'm directing all that inspiration to my knitting. I have a long list of knits to do, but it started with my Sea Sick Cardigan and here is the second: the Fisherman's Cardigan.
Pattern: my own
Yarn: Sandnes Garn Fritidsgarn
Needles: 5 mm
It's a simple top-down raglan with short rows on the neck. I really love the effect of the garter-panel in front. And the color of the yarn is gorgeous.
