2012 FO: Creature Comforts Cardi

Pattern: Creature comforts cardi by Amy Hendrix for madelinetosh
Yarn: madelinetosh tosh vintage in Antique Lace
Needles: US7 & US8

This cardi is very hard to photograph on the type of "dress form" I have (see shoulders). But I'm too impatient to find someone to take a picture of me wearing it, so it will have to do.

I finished this last year, using up just over 5 skeins of madelinetosh. The construction of the sweater is interesting, making more of a shrug than a cardigan. Which also makes it a little difficult to wear.

Nonetheless, it's a finished sweater, and the most yardage I have used yet. It's got a beautiful leaf pattern on the back that I really like and it got a lot of compliments at Vogue Knitting Live last year. Also, it has adorable little pockets.

Wheee, pockets!
