Finally finished! The Erika colour block cardigan.
Yarn: Cascade 220 Sport in 7803 magenta, 8892 azure, and 8914 granny smith.Pattern: Erika cardigan by Milla Mia Sweden
My modifications: knit it a couple of inches shorter than the pattern called for, and left off the front patch pockets.
My project is detailed on Ravelry here: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/lbeckste/erika-cardigan
My husband thinks the colour combo is too much. What do you think? Do I look like a clown?
Evil clown, maybe:
The frustration of not being able to smile naturally in photos overcomes me.
There are a couple of things on my needles these days.
I’m making a sleeveless dress from this beautiful batik fabric I bought in Ghana, using Burda’s “Fatina” pattern #6051.

And on my knitting needles, I’m working on the Erika Cardigan by MillaMia, using Cascade 220 sport yarn.
Work in Progress: the Erika Cardigan by MillaMia
I chose a brighter blue than the model from the MillaMia website, as well as chartreuse for the sleeves instead of grass green.
