Enchantment

The August clean up month resulted in three finished objects and brought the number of WIP projects down to just three. A resounding success! As a reward and to celebrate the beginning of my favorite season, I casted on for a new fall sweater.

Spoked Cardigan

This pattern is a little bit of a departure from the sweaters that I have made so far. First of all, it is knitted sideways starting at the right front and working around the body to the left front. Very different from the top down construction that I am used to, but interesting to knit. Secondly, this sweater is all about COLOR! Because a sweater celebrating autumn should give Mother Nature a run for her money. What better yarn to do this than Noro Kureyon? I am completely under its spell. The colors are so bizarrely enchanting, as only Noro can be.

mouse gray, acid yellow and aubergine...welcome to the world of Noro!

(So many wonderfully creative bloggers are participating in WIP Wednesday with TAMI'S AMIS. Go check them out!)
