Ready for Autumn: Aidez Cardigan

Last weekend, I finished off this super warm cardigan, the Aidez sweater from designer Cirilia Rose, and left it blocking while I went to Chicago for CHA (the Craft & Hobby Association tradeshow). And today I put it on and stood in 95-degree heat while Chris snapped a few pics to share with you. Wow. It’ll be fantastic for days when it’s cold, but I just can’t face wearing a coat.

This was my first attempt with cabling–yeah, I’m feeling pretty ambitious. Ha! And the mistakes I made are totally ones that I can live with, so I just let them go. The different tones in the yarn–from bright blue to deep teal–helps conceal the flaws in the pattern. Win!

And here’s a goofy shot of me that Chris took before we admitted defeat on taking the photos indoors….

I just can’t stop messing with my hair!
