This small lacey cardie with cap sleeves is knit from the bottom edging up, with no seaming. Because of the small amounts of yardage, it’s the ideal pattern for making the most of that preciously perfect yarn.

Cloud Chaser

Cloud Chaser

The Cloud Chaser vest is a design I’ve been dreaming of for years. Delicately cabled. Dramatically draped. The back features full cables, knit from hem to neck. The fronts are knit side to side, with a single cable detail near the edge. But the collar is the highlight here; wide and cabled and framing the neckline perfectly.

    I can’t wait to see it! I had a similar experience: we put all the contents of our basement in storage over a year ago in preparation for selling the house, and it ended up taking longer than expected (duh), so I finally was able to get reacquainted with my stash a couple of months ago. Found some great stuff, but nothing as good as an almost-completed indigirl design :)

    Congratulations on momhood! Carly is a sweetie. And I’m really happy for you that your knitting gift has returned in wellness. And very happy to read your insightful words again. Your gift of expression touches me often and reflects on where I’ve sometimes been or where I may be heading.

    Love your little girl baby pattern and just purchased it to knit up for my 5 month old granddaughter. :)
