Today is my mum’s 50th birthday. If you are a long time reader you may have noticed my mom requesting every single sweater I have ever made in her size, without fail. So, I took a sweater I was going to make for myself and I made it for her instead.
This is the Katherine Hepburn Cardigan from Lace Style using Louet Gems Sport Weight in Willow.
She swears it fits perfectly, which is a miracle since she has yet to ever give me her measurements. She also promised to send a modelled picture but I’m still waiting for one of her wearing her uniform top so I won’t hold my breath.
The only modification I made was to add the v-neck because I thought it might be more flattering and I was concerned about running out of yarn, although I still had a good hunk of a hank left.
And with that my knitting has ground to a halt. I crawl home from work and collapse on the couch in front of Seinfeld repeats to wake up hours later in a puddle of my drool. It’s a glamorous life.
