LL to the EDC

Over the weekend I got my knit-on and started my Everyday Cardigan in Lorna's Laces Bullfrogs & Butterflies, I think the color is called "Lakehouse". Check it out - I knew I just needed a truely mindless pattern to get my knitting mojo back. I finished about 10" of the back.


Looks good so far. I have mixed feelings about varigated yarn. I love love love love it in the hank, but when it starts knitting up I get anxious about how it pools. I like it when the colors blend one into the next, with this one, the green kinda jumps out. But I do like all the cool colors, and seriously - this cardigan is going to match about 90% of my wardrobe - so that's a plus. I hope to finish this one while it's still cool so I can actually wear it. I really like my Manly sweater, but only got to wear it once before the weather got too warm!

Good knit on!

Yeah, looks like Lakehouse to me. (former LL addict ;-)

Ooh, that's a pretty colorway. It reminds me of a dark Monet painting.

M - I got it on sale, it was like 50% off... there's no way I could afford LL otherwise!

Melissa - I thought the same thing looking at it on the computer, the way the colors blur together is very impressionistic. I might have to call this my "water lilies" cardigan.

I feel the same way about variegated yarn - I love it in the spool, but I'm afraid of getting a scary pool of lime green over my left boob.

I like LL myself in the heavier weights. Never really thought the sockweight was all that soft. It's looking good--and mindless knitting--my fave!
