I don’t often find myself casting on for a knit for myself and I find myself casting on for a sweater even less often. And yet, I find myself doing both this week! I’m casting on for a Larch cardigan in my most recent favorite yarn: Madelinetosh DK. The yarn is fantastic and I’m working in a dark purple. This sweater has to be the most debated and long awaited project of all time.
I hummed and hawed over the pattern and the yarn for ages. When I finally decided on the Tosh DK I had to wait for the latest shipment to come in. I have been thinking/dreaming/obsessing over this sweater for months! I debated about the colour most. It looks so great in a mustard yellow but I just felt I would wear a darker colour much more, even if some of the details were lost in the darkness of it.
The pattern is the Larch Cardigan and it’s simple but lovely, I’m so excited! As usual I dream of this being the greatest sweater ever knit, visions of grandeur! Definitely come and check out our latest supply of the ever popular Madelinetosh yarns!
