Not mohair! Yay!

I don't know if it's because this is not fuzzy and teal, but this is my favorite FO of the last few:



It's the Alexa cap sleeve cardigan by Debbie Bliss, available free here. My mom got me this 80% wool/20% acrylic blend yarn (Filati Fantasia Favorit) in Russia, and she got me seven balls of it. Not enough for a full-out sweater, but the perfect amount for this little number: I had just half a skein left over!



And this concludes the long string of recent FOs for now. And considering that I'm moving in 20 days, I should keep it that way!

I love it! It fits you so well and looks great on you (I totally had to add to to my queue!) But seriously, when do you sleep??

The perfect little Summer sweater! I love it. I wonder if I can get one knit before next Summer? I love the color your Mom picked when she bought the yarn.

That's a great pattern! I hadn't seen that before but I really, really like it. Great color, too.

Good luck with your move!

Oh, that is so pretty. The colour is so beautiful! I have that in my Ravelry queue and I may just have to move it closer to the top. :-)

Good luck with your preparations for moving!
