Yet another crisis has hit upon our lives. I don't want to go into it too much, but I'll say that it's my husband that's having a health crisis. It's not minor, yet it's not major. After a week in the hospital and many tests, there is still uncertainty. It has been a roller-coaster of emotions, but we're optimistic for the future.

For all those anxious to see pics of my Kauni Cardi, here they are.



Boy, I hope spring comes soon so I can say goodbye to some of this winter fat!

I've been wearing it everyday since Saturday and usually unbuttoned. I'm really enjoying this cardi.

Oh, I forgot! I have started another project. I'm prepping for the La Digitessa socks, so felt it would be best to knit The Firestarter socks by Yarnissima to get a feel for her pattern charting and knitting toe up. It's a free pattern offered by The Loopy Ewe. Still not my favorite way to makes socks, but it isn't awful, either.

I'm using Wollmeise for the first time in Campari Orange.

Knit On!

The Kauni certainly has the look of spring to it - hopefully it will be the harbinger!

Sorry to hear that the bad new continues - you're in my thoughts (the good ones)!!

Sorry to hear your husband is not well. You're being awfully brave about it. I think I would rate anyting that put my husband in the hospital for more than overnight as serious.

Your Kauni looks fabulous. I had a chance to see that yarn up close during Fibrefest here. I would have come home with some if I had known the yardage requirements for something as beautiful as your sweater.

I've been enjoying your adventure with this cardi so much that I've finally found the courage to make one myself - steek & all! Of course I have to finish spinning the yarn first...
I compliment you - you made it look SO easy! The colors are absolutely smashing too! Kudos! Well done!
