Today I am so SO excited to share that I have finally finished my Tambourine Cardigan. I am of course even more excited to have this project off my needles and in circulation in my wardrobe!
This cardigan started out just a small seed of an idea, at JJ Bean on Main Street in Vancouver with my mom. I remember drinking iced coffees and doing crossword puzzles while I debated what colour yarn to buy before returning to the yarn shop to purchase.
I think this may just well be my very favorite thing I've ever knit. There really is only one step left- choosing and sewing on the buttons. I am thinking of going with small wooden buttons, as I think they'll stand out and complement the yarn nicely.
However, I am not going to be wearing this cardigan buttoned anytime soon (with that 22 week bump growing) so I'm taking my time and hoping to stumble across the perfect buttons soon. In the meantime, I've knit a small band with the leftover yarn so that I can tie the sweater closed above my bump if it's a little chilly.
This pattern is from the 2015 Spring edition of Pompom Quarterly. If you're curious you can find my Ravelry project page (and links to the pattern) here
Also, now that I've knit one cardigan I'm already dreaming of the next. I mentioned before that I've got Rosemont in my queue and recently I've been dreaming about (if not seriously considering...) this.
