Yarn Along- Abalone








I finished my Abalone cardigan. I'm participating in the Ravellenic 2012 Games.  This is my second completed project!  I wish I had more done, but I've been spending more time taking pictures than knitting lately.  And again I was hoping to find someone to model it for me, but once again I modeled it myself.  I used a hanger for the front shot.  It is supposed to be worn open and not closed, but I thought it looked nice with the shawl pin.  I though the picture I took from over my head was just fun even though it didn't really show off the cardigan.  My favorite part of this cardigan is how it hugs my hips.  It is so comfy!

Now I'm onto my Grey Loop using Miss Bab's yarn. This loop (cowl) isn't grey and isn't really following the pattern.  But if you read the pattern you will understand why I am not really following the pattern. The woman that wrote it made mistakes herself and it is written as you can do this or that. Basically you cast on 210 stitches and just keep knitting.  I've made several variations of this pattern and have love them equally.
