Command Performance

Okay, so a command performance of the Whisper Cardigan. Here it is modelled. No way were these going to be outside – only 9 degrees today!

And a chance to show off my cool new t-shirt too. I picked up a couple of different prints of these t’s in Christchurch.  They are made from Organic Cotton, and bought at none other than The  Warehouse! Cost? $22.99, buy one get one half price. Cool eh! The other one I got was a silver fern print on grey background. Also seriously funky 🙂

Back to the cardigan… I knit the back an extra inch longer, making it nine inches, as I like my cardigans long.

And since we’re still here, from the side…

When Interweave published this pattern, they also included it in their Knitting Daily gallery, which shows the sample cardigan on several models. It was absolutely slated by many people, which was at odds with its popularity on Ravelry. I think that I will get masses of use out of this, once the weather is better. I love the fact that you can still show off the top underneath – that’s one of my pet peeves about wearing sweaters and cardigans. You might never see the top underneath, a pain when you make an effort with your outfit. Whisper doesn’t have this problem.  And as I said earlier, I think a second Whisper will be joining my wardrobe once the weather is warmer.

    Oh, that looks wonderful! Very nice (and very cool t-shirt too!) Sorry to hear about the pull dramas, but the FO looks worth the effort.
