Summer Sweater

Not the best pictures, I have the same problem as Sara, it's the photographer. Mr. Truck just doesn't get what I want in a picture but he tries.

This is the Printed Silk Cardigan from IK. I made it in Plymouth Yarn Wildflower D.K. and although the yarn was really really splitty I like the end result.

I followed the pattern exactly except I knit it all in one piece to the armholes which meant I had to take out the selvage stitches except I left one in at each side and purled those to make a faux seam. And I made a hem so it wouldn't roll. Oh, and I lengthened the bodice so the empire waist would be where it should be on me. But other than, I swear it's just like the pattern, except I did shorten the sleeves a bit.

It's very comfortable and it's one that I've gotten quite a few compliments on.

It's awesome! Mr. Truck is a much better FOtographer. I bet he doesn't whine about it either.
