A finished project, at last…

One of the things I love about crochet is how painless it is to make the yarn ends disappear as I go along.  Unlike knitting, when I have to spend hours (it seems) weaving in the ends and hoping they don't make the fabric or seams too bulky in spots.  Case in point:  I'm still doing the finishing work on the knitted hoodie and top mentioned in the previous journal entry.  But I completely finished a crocheted cardigan in the meantime…

This turned out so soft and warm and fuzzy!  I almost wish I were keeping it for myself, but it's a Christmas gift.  Sadly, the photo doesn't do it justice.  The fabric isn't nearly so dull in person.

Details:  Yarn is Overture by S.R. Kertzer, in Midnight, 17 balls.  Pattern is the Filet Cardigan from Great Crocheted Sweaters in a Weekend by Nola Theiss & Chris Rankin.  I believe the book is out of print.  I found it in a used book store a couple of months ago and fell in love with all the nifty designs.

And, because I can't go two minutes without having something new on the needles, yesterday I cast on a 3/4 sleeve cotton tee.  In-progress pics to follow eventually.  In the meantime, I guess I better get back to weaving in ends and sewing up seams.
