FO: Inland

I can't explain why my Inland took me so long to knit and finish, but I can say it was entirely my own fault. I've already gushed about how much I love Jane Richmond's patterns, and this one is no different. Yet, for inexplicable reasons, this project kept getting put back into my knitting bag and weeks would pass before I picked it up again. Completely bizarro as I loved the pattern and the cardigan is knit with bulky yarn on size US10.5 needles ~ seriously, what was the matter with me?


But I'm done beating myself up. What's more important is the fact that I now have a beautiful cozy and classic cardigan in my wardrobe.  Everyone needs a pop of red in their sweater collection and this red is the perfect red:  warm and cool at the same time.  The yarn is Cascade Ecological Wool which is one of my favorite bulky wools ~ it's economical and blooms so nicely after a soak.

My lovely and talented friend Susan spent an afternoon photographing Miranda recently, and she took this fabulous shot ~ Vogue, anyone?
