I prefer "cardigan"

I think I have it.

I bought 8 balls of Austermann Candy Color in May, but didn't have a project in mind. I thought perhaps it could be another Clapotis, but after swatching a bit, decided against it.

For the past couple of days, I've been on the lookout for a project for bulky weight yarn. I think I have it--it's the Hot Lava Cardigan.

Yes, it resembles a shrug, but I prefer "cardigan".

Mini-swatch. 3 sts & 5 rows/inch on US 10-1/2 needles


  • Oooh, what pretty yarn. I can't wait to see how this "cardigan" turns out.

  • Maybe you should just always call it "cardi", as that's a shortened version of cardigan? ;)

  • Good one! From now on, it's the Hot Lava Cardi.

  • Whatever you call it, it's cute and I think it will look really nice in that yarn.

  • Hey this will work up quickly with the 10.5's!! Can't wait to see it.

    BTW, where do you store all your knitted garments? Do you & SO go to IKEA every quarter & get another chest of drawers?

  • Not yet--the second sleeve is done down to the elbow. Once the forearm & cuff are finished, it'll be on to the bolero instructions.

  • Storage? It's not pretty. All I ask is that you don't look in my closet.
