NaKniSweMo 2016

Every year since 2010, I have participate in NaKniSweMo and this year is no exception.

For this year, I was excited to knit something with my recently acquired Rhinebeck yarn.  I’ve settled on a beautiful cardigan with lacy details: Lady Marple by Nadia Cretin-Lechenne.

Lady Marple by Nadia Cretin-Lechenne, pattern available on Ravelry for ~$5.20

I went to Rhinebeck with this sweater in mind and found exactly what I was looking for at the Spirit Trail Fiberworks booth.  I’m using the Zalti base which is an aran weight yarn made from 100% Targhee. It’s squishy and soft and I love the hand of the fabric.

I purchased two skeins in the colorway Hydrangea Blue.

A bit later on I was wandering through the Briar Rose Fibers booth and found the perfect matching buttons.

This past weekend I sat down to swatch for my sweater. After checking the math, I’m good to go. Let’s get this party started!
