It's not the royal wedding cake, but it's certainly cake - yarn cake! My first knit sweater is certainly cause for celebration. How many times have I talked myself out of a long-term knitting project? Or a large scale project? Plenty. Well, no more. Why? Because I saw beautiful green cardigan designed by Norah Gaughan in the Vogue Knitting magazine, Winter 2010/11 issue. I have yet to find a photo link, so here's one to VK's 360 video of Norah Gaugan's Cardigan .
If you ever have lived in S.F. (like yours truly) or along the coast, cardis are a must, even in the summer. This cardi is made out of Berrocco's Ultra Ulpaca (alpaca/wool blend) in #6725 and Ultra Ulpaca Light in #4275. The alpaca feels really soft, and the "pea soup mix" yarn has great subtle color variation of green, light green, and yellow. So, I ordered the yarn from my LYS, waited two weeks for the yarn to arrive, then a wonderful friend transformed the hanks into these beautiful cakes.
