Plan B

This is what we saw on one of our bike rides last week….

What a perfect day to ride horses (or bikes)!  Time to bring out the spring knitting, don’t you think?  I was contemplating what yarn to use, when I looked at these beauties from my recently frogged Dark and Stormy Cardi and thought… Plan B!

Same yarn, different pattern!

I’ve been wanting to knit the Garter Yoke Cardi for a while now and so as always, I went trolling through Ravelry looking at all the lovely GYCs for inspiration.  Wow, this is a popular pattern, no?  Madelinetosh Vintage is such a lovely, squishy yarn and it is just right for this pattern.  Garter stitch is so mindless, enjoyable and perfect and it glows in this colorway of Vintage. 

March means spring break is almsot here, I need me some mindless so we can go outside and play!

Happy March everyone:)

    I am beginner in this crochet world, and have started my first serious project after some playing around with threads and making some beautiful small doilies and few hereandthere projects. Now i working on cardigan (inspiration from all those elegant and beautiful cardigans and sweaters that you have made, and furthermore introduced me to Ravelry)but, OMG, these armholes are so confusing. I really would appreciate if you can help me in understanding the armhole shaping. I don’t know why I am not able to send a mail through my notebook.
