Just in time for February!









I'd had this pattern in my queue for a while before I got around to it. 
The yarn is a soft, bouncy bamboo wool.  The specifics escape me and the ball band "bracelets" have long been lost to three year olds.  The color was not my first choice, but it is really pretty when the sunlight hits the bamboo fibers just right.  It was a fun pattern to knit and I am well pleased with the result.

What a pretty cardi. I just recently learned to knit, and can't wait until I'm able to do things like this. You are an inspiration

The sweater pattern and color are lovely.  Great job!  I also love what appears to be two half-naked munchkins running in a blur in the background.  Looks like my house.

Thank you for the lovely comments.

The Lady February Cardigan would be a great introduction into both lace knitting (a simple 7 st, 4 row repeat) and seamless raglan construction.  You'll be surprised by how easy it is once you get started!

Yes, they are crazy, chasing each other around in their fuzzy pimp hats.   Cheesy  Some people have cats or dogs that must insert themselves into project photos.  I have little girls.   Grin

The lacy-ness is lovely.

May I ask where the pattern is from?

Thank you.  I love knitting lacy things.  The pattern is the February Lady Sweater.
