It took me exactly two weeks to finish my Rainbow Madigan! I don’t know if a sweater has ever made me so happy or made me want fall to arrive so soon. Of course since the DC area loves to hold on to a hot and humid summer, I probably won’t get a chance to wear this for another month.
I followed the pattern to a tee and didn’t do a single modification. Once you block it, you gain about an inch in length or so from the welt pattern loosening up a bit. I used the SweetGeorgia Superwash Worsted Weight in the following colors:
- Blood Orange
- Lemon Curd
- English Ivy
I am super pleased with the end results of this sweater. The SweetGeorgia worked up very well, holds great stitch definition and is still soft. This will not be an itchy sweater at all. This might be my new favorite yarn for superwash wool when I want to splurge a little bit. This pattern is also another one that I picked up via the Quince and Co. website. I love their patterns, next I have to try their yarn. It’s a little on the pricey side so I might have to buy something to just make a hat and see how I feel about their fiber.
I’ve also realized Cher believes anything I knit is automatically her blanket or meant for her to lounge on. Of course as soon as I put this on the floor she walked right on top of it and laid herself down. She also decided to sniff out my camera as well. At least she’s cute and my favorite girl.
Next up I just have one sleeve left on another newborn cardigan and then on to my next project! I’m not sure if it will be something for me or for my cousin in Chicago. I have a strong feeling it might be something for me, gotta build up my fall wardrobe! So what are you working on right now? Do share!
