New Threads Tuesday September 22, 2009

New Threads TUESDAY!


Pattern: Chic Knits Mondo Cable Cardi
Designer: Bonne Marie Burns
Yarn: Blackberry Ridge Farm MOHAIR MIST

OK, I’ll admit it. I’m more than a little thrilled to be celebrating New Threads at the magnum opus of the New TV Season! I love Fall! I love the plethora of the new fall shows!

Nothing like a little drama & visual stimulation to get one’s juices flowing and needles clicking. But of course, coming from where Drama is everything — from our flamboyant ex-Guv to our out-of-bounds Rapper West (you stepped on a kitten!), in Chicago, you just can’t escape!

So should I beat ’em or join ’em?

At least, I’ll be able to slip into my new cap-sleeved vest just in time for the show. I intend to wear this over a turtleneck or even another sweater OR although I haven’t tried it yet, over a light jacket. Vest as capelet.

MCC-cap-5516  MCC-cap-5523

This little number is the cap-sleeved version (included in the pattern) and it is very soft and inviting now that it’s had a bath. The yarn bloomed beautifully and the color (Natural Dark Grey) is one of my all time favorites.

Also different this time out? I made the collar half the size as the pattern stated.

For all those Mondo Cable Cardi-ers out there, there will be a PDF sent soon that outlines how this is done (if you got it at your LYS, please ask there for a copy of the Mods).

There’s just a hint of cool in the morning today, so I’m off to give this a test run :)

    This is so great–especially in my favorite workhorse color, gray! The Mondo Cable Cardi is on my to-do list as soon as I complete sweaters for my nieces (soon)!! Will there be any way to get the mod (shorter collar) if the LYS at which I bought the pattern is not so “local”? It’s about an hour and 45 minutes away… I’m a short neck girl, and this version will look much better on me. :-)

    Oooh–I like this better than any of the other versions!! I think I might need to learn how to cable!
