Flying Geese Cardigan

Alice Starmore patterns are always gorgeous. I used Scottish Fleet 10 skeins and made a fair amount of changes in the pattern so it would fit me.
I love it! I knit it in about a month, earlier on this year. It sat in a basket waiting patiently to be blocked until this past weekend.

For some reason blogger decided to rotate the picture and I am not fighting with blogger today.


No buttons, just a clasp....I never button up my sweaters.

It's beautiful. The color is fabulous, and getting an AS to actually fit might be the most impressive of all - based on my experience, at least.

Having seen and fondled this while it was in progress I can vouch for the beautiful workmanship. Laritza is a fabulous knitter, it's always a treat to see what's on her needles.

Hi, I am dying to make this sweater, I was given a gift certificate to Virtual Yarns. Can you please tell me what book you found the Flying Geese cardigan in? I have looked for In the Hebrides, and it is so expensive. Lori in Alaska
