Claire's Summer Cardigan

Claire stopped by this weekend to show us her new cardigan, knit in two weeks flat! Doesn't she look happy?!

This was Claire's first top down sweater, which she highly recommends. She chose Knitting Pure & Simple's Summer Cardigan pattern along with Sheep Shop Yarns Sheep Number 3, color G123. Sheep Number 3 is a lovely blend of 70% wool and 30% silk in a DK weight. Claire could not resist the pretty oranges and golds running through this colorway.

Kathy also fell in love with Sheep Number 3's color G130 and knit this shell for the shop. It's Knitting at Knoon's Essential Shell and Tank, which provides two different neck and length variations. She enjoyed the yarn and the pattern's versatility and is now making one for herself!

As you can see, they both chose well and did a great job!
