My skinny and cropped spring cardigan, my small ocean. Yup. This one is a bit tight, but so much fun after all the grey and black. All the small details worked out just right. Love the neckline, the waist shaping, the short row sleeve caps - even the color is great.
But the yarn. Must say I'm little bit disappointed. Knots, strange puffy joins, bits with almost no twist at all and leaking color (blue hands long after knitting). And I should have picked up larger needles to begin with - but I kind of liked the tight fabric. (Not anymore, since it will not grow one bit - no matter how hard I block it...)
But the color is great, even after washing. And I have the feeling that I'll wear this a lot in the summer. It should be perfect little cardigan for warmer days.
Pattern: my own.
Yarn: Colinette Jitterbug
Needles: 3 mm
