The Cluprit Revealed

Been super, super busy here. Lots going on at work, lots going on at home. I think I'll break this up in a couple of posts for ya.

First, here is the thumb injury project revealed! The Lace Cardigan from Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2008. Knit in elann.com Lara cotton yarn.

I knitted this project for elann.com. It turned out to be a beautiful sweater, but boy was it a challenging project! I was running a little behind getting it done on my deadline, so I was knitting like mad for several evenings with those little size 3 needles.... and there you have the cause of the thumb injury. The end result was well worth it! I really don't think I would have ever completed this sweater if I didn't "have" to for elann. I'm so glad I did though. I think it is my most wonderful knitted project so far. :)

You have to go check out the elann.com website!! They have my sweater featured on the front page of the website right now, how about that!? And on the page for the Lara yarn, which I really loved & will find another project to knit with.
