Knitting

FO Friday | Fine (Grey) Sand.

I know I’ve already shared a finished shot of my latest cardigan, but really, an airport bathroom selfie doesn’t do this one justice.

So I asked Katie to take a few photos.

Now you can see what the piece really looks like…like how it’s the perfect length to wear with just about any top (and cover up all of my rear end).

…and how the fronts are shaped ever so slightly to give it movement

…and how well the linen wears (seriously, I’ve worn this at least a dozen times and it’s lived in my bag for hours at a time and it still looks just-blocked great when I put it on)

…and how beautiful the lifted increases look in this open gauge

…and how perfect the bracelet length sleeve is for wearing pushed up or down.

…and most definitely how much I love it!

The pattern is Heidi Kirrmaier’s Fine Sand and I used the suggested Louet Euroflax Sport Weight (in a color that matches pretty much every top in my wardrobe – appropriately called Cloud Grey). The yarn is 100% linen, and while it’s a little stiff to knit with, it softens beautifully after washing and drying (yep, this one goes in the dryer!) There are more details about the project on my Ravelry page (here).

Thank you, Katie, for helping me tell the story.

Wishing you all a fine weekend, with just enough gray!
