Featherweight

Yarn is on the way to Wannietta. She's going to make me the Featherweight Cardigan by Hannah Fettig.

Hannah Fettig's extremely popular Featherweight Cardigan is now available via CustomFit! 
Featherweight is an easy and versatile knit, making it a great first sweater for beginner knitters. The CustomFit version of Featherweight is a set-in sleeve, pieced garment that can be made with a variety of sleeve and hem lengths. Each CustomFit Featherweight pattern has been crafted especially for your body, using your own gauge numbers - so not only can chose your sweater's body and sleeve lengths, you can work it in any gauge you like, too! 
To achieve the lighter-than-air style of the sweater shown, use any lace-weight or fingering yarn. The original Featherweight was knit using lace weight yarn knit at 6 sts per inch / 24 sts per 10cm. Also, the original sweater is worked with a 3/4 sleeve length and a high hip length, but both of those options can be customized to suit you!
CustomFit patterns are perfect for Wannietta. She is an amazing knitter. You'd think that she makes her garments on a knitting machine. One small problem. Sometimes Wannietta has a hard time achieving the tension that the pattern asks for. This way we are writing a pattern to her tension. Now she doesn't have to swatch and swatch and swatch. One swatch and if we like the fabric she can start knitting.

You can purchase the original Featherweight Cardigan pattern on Ravelry...

What yarn did I choose? Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in a very special colour - Sparrow Lake. This colour was dyed for us and no other store in the world has it.
After work we went for a drive. Dad had been out twice today and called with exciting news - the walls are going up. He went once at noon on his way home from work to take mom to the doctors. Then he took her out to see. It was very dark and rainy and muddy when we got there. Beth took pictures from the passenger seat of the truck.
Then we went to Denningers for dinner. Look at our Advent calendars. I don't eat chocolate so Beth is very excited to have two. :)
Now I need to go and knit. The next Mystery KAL clue is out!
