Ella Cardigan – WIP #1

Ella Cardigan Body

I’m having a lot of fun with this cardigan.  I’ve worked up to the armholes for the cardigan body and I’m ready for the sleeves.  Knitting the doll version first was a great idea.  I have a lot more confidence and can relax and enjoy it instead of worrying if I’m following the pattern correctly.

This yarn, Quince & Co Piper, feels amazing both as a skein and knitted.  I’ve been disappointed with yarn that felt wonderful before knitted but not so much afterwards.  That is not the case here.  I’m still having my embarrassing yarn petting moments topped with yarn squishing moments.

Oddly enough Piper is a single ply yarn.  Typically I avoid single ply like the plague.  I’m glad I didn’t this time!  Maybe I like the excuse for my less than ideal tension, just blame it on the single ply yarn.  Maybe the lace weight single ply doesn’t have as much variation in thickness as a worsted weight single ply.  Either way, I love it and I’m glad I found it.
