Ravelry Notebook 

I totally have a crush on this sweater. Its pretty, extremely wearable and a very quick knit. I still cannot get over that it was free. I fighting my desire to cast on because I didn't want to be a part of the bandwagon but I after seeing so many beautiful versions I could not deny myself any longer!

I made no modifications to the pattern. I usually roll that way. In the case of full disclosure mine came out ever so snug around the sleeves and armholes. Upon looking it up in Ravelry it seems I wasn't alone in this. If I decided to make it again I would go up a size for the sleeves for a looser "oversized" fit – which is what I think was the intended design.



I love nothing more than a sweater that will be worn to pieces. I have no doubts Aidez will get just as much rotation as my Belfast Hoodie (another HOT crush). It's the perfect layering sweater. 


The sweater I am crushing on next: Amy Christoffer's Larch Cardigan 

(And yes, I apprently hae an undying crush on my striped tank, too.)

Making Aidez

Beginnings of Aidez

Hello! I am back home after a few wonderful days in my home state of NJ! It was the first time back since we moved to SF. Jersey still looks good albet a bit HOT. Amongst my fun times there was a workout at the Local Barre (thanks for getting my butt there Dane!), a knit night at Patricia's Yarns, a wedding and of course quality family time. I didn't get much knitting done but can you blame me?

Before I left, I actually started a new cardigan – Aidez. I remember when it first came out thinking what a gorgeous pattern it was and I was shocked it was free. Since then so many gorgeous versions started popping up and well I couldn't deny myself any longer. Thank you to Cirilia and Berroco for being so generous with this great design.

I finished the back which lies half done in the above picture and am almost done with the fronts. In a moment of full disclosure, it took me a few tries to get things going. I had all sorts of trouble keeping track of all the different cable patterns. Yes me, the one who doesn't write things down and didn't start here either. I blame the wine.

May simply came and went and I suspect June has plans to do the same. I'm going to try to take things slow and enjoy the next color of Project Spectrum – Green. Stash Dive!!

(Oh and I'll also be at TNNA with Patricia of Patricia's Yarns in two weeks! Cannot wait to share some of what inspires me there with you! And see some of you too!!! :-))
