    About

    Soft colors, soft yarn and easy fair isle with only two colors. The Willow and Lark Ramble yarn was very nice, and I've never used yarn that responded so well to blocking. I was disappointed after I finished knitting it because it looked so rumply, but then after blocking it was transformed. This pattern called for steeking. Well, I have never done a steek, and don't really want to learn how. So I worked the cardigan back and forth and had to modify it so that yarn did not get marooned on the wrong edge.

        Thank you. Me too. This is the first time I've used this yarn. It is soft and drapes beautifully, and the "mélange" coloration contributes to the soft effect.
