Remember the yarn dyeing adventure, where Susan and I turned neon orange Cascade 128 yarn into something a bit more subdued?

It’s on the needles.

I’ve cast on for Kyra, a free Berroco pattern for an asymmetrical cardigan. I’ve had my eye on it ever since I saw this version on Ravelry. The color is about what I’d hoped the Cascade yarn was going to be when I originally bought it.

The Cascade 128 is bulkier than the yarn called for in the pattern, so my stitch gauge is different (though interestingly, my row gauge is the same). To compensate, I’m making the XS size. Since it’s knitted on size 10 needles, it’s going pretty quickly. The back is done:

    I’m not entirely sure how anyone would know what a cute sweater it is due to the pose of that former Cosby kid model. She looks like she’s having a seizure.

    Wow, I can’t believe how good that yarn looks knit up.

    Oh, wow – great pattern choice! (LMAO at Carrie’s observation – the Rav version is awesome, though.)
