I’m gonna get you, sucka!!

There’s always an element of magic in the spring garden, where from one day to the next I can watch this:

slowly unfurl itself into this:

and finally, reaching its full glory, into this:

Early response to the Guinevere Evening Cardi has been very positive on Ravelry, inspiring me to get busy writing up the pattern ASAP. I have notes – lots of them – that will be fairly easy to write up into a multi-sized pattern.

What I don’t have yet is a test knitter, and I’m reluctant to put a sweater pattern out there unless it has been ruthlessly examined by other knitters first. If anyone would like to test knit this design, let me know and I’ll send a suitable yarn along with the pattern as it stands.
Just call me Grace – Grace Kelly, that is!
The vintage buttons were such a joy to use – finally. I saved them literally for years, waiting for something special to give them a home. The top one is the enameled turquoise, and the other three are the iridescent blue and green domes. As mentioned elsewhere, I applied large snaps to the inside fronts of the cardi, and stitched the buttons to the outside where they lie nice and flat.

  1. If you’re still looking for test knitters, let me know. I’m interested and have a spot open in my schedule right now.

    I don’t know if this was a general call for test knitters but I’m interested. I love this cardigan but I’ve never test knit anything so I’m not sure of the details. Let me know if you’re still looking. It is beautiful!
