FO: Canyon Whisper

Knit while on vacation at Grand Canyon, the colors of this yarn are reminiscent of the desert and canyon landscape. The last time I used this pattern I made size medium, but I was never comfortable with the fit. It seemed too tight across the back and under the arms. After I lost that sweater while on vacation I decided to knit another in the same yarn, but sized for a better fit.

Pattern: Whisper Cardigan
Yarn: Knitpicks Shadow in Oregon Coast Heather

It’s beautiful!

Beautiful sweater and this one fits you well.

Smart choice of pattern…looks beautiful on you…great job!

Happy knitting :knitting:

That is absolutely beautiful and suits you VERY well. Looks incredibly comfortable, too!!

I’m sorry you lost your first one. This one is beautiful, love the color, and it looks like it fits great!

Beautiful!! Looks like it fits perfectly!! Love the soft neutral color. Great job Slim!

As usual, your knitting is impeccable! I can’t tell you how inspiring your knitting is!
Thanks for the extra notes (on your Rav project page) about how you made it a perfect fit!
I do like “the look” of yours best! A tad longer, a tad more room to breathe! Perfect!

I have a knitting buddy over at Rav who buys a lot of MadelineTosh Light (fingering) yarn.
Oh wow! A perfect yarn for this design! She’s very petite, like you…and I totally see her in this adorable cardi! I linked her up!

No doubt, many of you already know about this tip…but it was new to me, so maybe it’s new to some of you as well. I printed it and stuffed it into my knitting bag! It’s not hard to remember, but I WANT TO REMEMBER to use it next time!

" [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma][SIZE=4][COLOR=navy]Instead of trying to guess how much yarn to peel off before making your slip knot and doing long-tail cast-on, use two balls of yarn or the tail from inside ball and the end tail from outside ball, put them together and make a slip knot. Put the slip knot on your needle and separate the strands of yarn into your long tail cast-on “tent”. Cast on until you have the number of stitches you need, plus one. Work back to slip knot and slip it off end of needle and slip knot out. That’s it. Clean and simple."[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

Gorgeous! You did a great job and it’s a wonderful pattern! I’ve added it my list of a gazillion other patterns that I’d love to try :teehee:

Very Pretty! :inlove: I had to do a double take b/c I remember the pictures of the first one you knit.

Isn’t the Grand Canyon marvelous?!

Yes, the Canyon is wonderful – a magical place. We spent several days hiking and backpacking and can’t wait to go back!
