Cardigan: Day 1

I have cast on for the cardigan. The yarn is Ella Rae Classic in color 12. The pattern is the basic seamless crew neck cardigan from Leisure Arts: The Complete Book of  Raglan Sweaters. The sweater is knit from the top down. The color if the yarn is impossible to photograph correctly. I tried on a light background and a dark background. I shall try outside without a flash next time. It is a dusty purple, not lilac. I am knitting the size 38 which I hope will be OK.

    It looks great! I swatched again with size 6 needles and it came out perfect (I think). Will give it a soak and see what it says after that…. Maybe I’ll be ready to cast on soon! 🙂

    Whether a lilac or a dusty purple, you are so lucky you can wear pretty pastel colors like that.
