Happy Chinese New Years everyone. I must admit that I'm not cooking anything special today. With hubby working such long hours, I decided we'll just do a simple dinner. Otherwise, I would of made him take me out for a great chinese dinner. Oh well, I'll have to take a rain check!
It feels so good to finish a project! I finished my Mrs. Darcy Cardigan. It's from here: http://ndieknits.wordpress.com/patterns-2/patterns/. I had to knit this because I LOVE the movie, Pride and Prejudice. It's one of my favorite. Anyways...I really enjoyed knitting this. I guess I'm kind of a simple girl. I like sweaters to knit that are simple. I like projects I can knit that relaxes me and not add more stress! I followed a fellow Raveler's modifications mostly (dharmabum), with a few modifications of my own. I didn't like how narrow the front was so I did 3 less decreases on the neck line. I also added one more button as an afterthought. I'm thrilled with how it turned out and it feels so warm! The sleeves are a bit long but honestly, I like it. It's a great sweater for a day like today ~ drizzly, 50ish degree day! (That's one of my pet chickens in the picture with me).
Happy New Year!!!!!
