Audrey in Blue

February 19, 2011


My notes say I started this on Dec. 3. I worked on it for a few days, then put it away. When I decided I needed to work with this pretty blue again it was pretty quick knitting. Ravelry says there are 470 Audreys before me and all seem to love it. Me too! I think this will be the perfect spring and summer sweater.


I have a yarn crush on anything Cashmerino, sooooo soft. I used 6.2 skeins of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino in color 032, a bright cornflower blue and it matches my toes exactly. what. luck. ;)

Audrey in Unst is highly recommended and I also like Peyton, from the same collection. My Ravelry page gives the knitting details on this sweet lacey cardi. Sweater #5 for 2011.

I am finishing up another Effortless Cardigan, this time in some white wool from my stash. Will also start on something Veera using my new Stitches West purchase, either this one or this one or this one. Gah! So many choices!

It's a happy, rainy, knitty day for me today, hope you have a good day too!
