What's This?





I finally got the zipper set in the Ribby Cardi! It's been so long, the details on this project are kind of fuzzy, but I do know that I used Cascade 220 in navy blue and pink. I think it would also look smashing in navy blue and orange. I had some issues with the zipper, mainly with the zipper moving through the sewing machine faster than the fabric, but I finally got that sorted. The designer, Bonne Marie Burns, has a wonderful tutorial for installing zippers, but as I am without an Internet connection at home, I winged it.

Of course, today is the first day that it's actually been warm outside, so I can't wear it (NOT that I'm complaining!).

WOW...that is one fabulous knit in really nice colorways. The combo is excellent! And it looks great on you. You need to send this photo to B-M's gallery, stat :-)

It's a FO! Who cares if it's too warm? It's still great that you finished it.

Really nice! The colours are great together. Well done. Hopefully you will get a wee cool spring day to enjoy it at least once before summer.
