FO: Featherweight Cardigan1+
I’m rather pleased that I finished a couple of big projects this weekend. First, my Featherweight Cardigan:
I added length to both the body and sleeves, and knitted the band in 1×1 rib. I am still amazed that an entire cardigan can emerge from just one skein. It’s a shame I didn’t finish it before the cold weather set in, it will be quite a few months before I get to wear it.
Second, I finished mending and re-lining my winter coat:
I took out the old acetate lining, re-enforced and bound all the worn seams and made a new lining in British wool suiting. It’s a little extravagant, my coat is lined in fabric that’s a better quality that the outside of most coats, but it will add extra warmth and will last forever. The suiting came from British Fabrics eBay store, my favourite place exceptional quality tailoring fabrics at bargain prices.
I’m looking forward to being snug and warm on the train platform tomorrow morning!
