FO: Rosemont Cardigan

Let’s start the week off with a finished object, shall we? Here is my finished Rosemont Cardigan.
Rosemont
This pattern is from the Hannah Fettig, Home and Away Collection. From this collection I’ve knit a three colored Lesley sweater and the Boothbay cardigan that did not flatter my ample behind AT ALL. It is now the prized possession of my BFF Jessica. I love the patterns in this book and that she offers seamed and seamless versions of each pattern. I wanted Boothbay to be my ultimate cardigan and when that curved hem shape failed me I decided to one day knit Rosemont instead. I love a good shawl collar and with the straight edge hem I knew it wouldn’t sit up on my butt in a bad way. I was holding onto a significant quantity of Periwinkle Sheep Intent yarn in this soft and lovely Rose Quartz color. Honestly, Intent is one of my favorite yarns. I will admit though, the toughest part of this cardigan was all the stitches for that shawl collar. Goodness gracious, 300 stitches takes a bit of time to work out but I finished!

I know most people don’t think this is my typical color but I love a good blush shade. It’s almost like a neutral and it matches a ton of stuff already in my closet. Case in point, this cardigan goes perfectly with my Rose Gold Bryr clogs and I recently picked up one of their Clogs & Dogs tote bag supporting North Valley Animal Disaster Group, a North Valley organization that is on the ground, saving the lives of animals effected by the recent devastating California wild fires. I also added a 157 of Gemma embroidered patch of the dog Mochi to the tote. Mochi’s adventures are one of my favorite cartoons.

I’m also hoping this cardigan will be a part of our handmade holiday photos this year! I’ve got some lovely yarn for coordinating sweaters for the dogs and I’m almost finished with Kendell’s vest. I may have to alter it a bit from my original plan because the Remix yarn is lighter than I anticipated. But we shall see. So that’s what I was able to finish over my Thanksgiving break, what about you?
