A FO I can show

The last few things I've been working on are things I can't show you yet, but, lured by a ball or two of Noro, I played around with making a little cropped cardigan for Miss Thang, who obligingly posed for this photos:




I improvised it, doing a top-down raglan knit in one piece. I like the Taiyo, a blend of cotton, wool, silk and maybe some nylon? All the striping fun of Noro but a lighter blend of fibers for warmer weather.

Both she and it are lovely. Thanks for the tip on Taiyo - I hadn't heard of it.

Oh she looks divine in her new sweater! Great job, Carol! Isn't it nice to knit a winner (something the kid likes and will wear)?

What a great little sweater, it's perfect for her and her new 'do.

And not a bad job for a woman "who doesn't know how to love" ...
