Stitch Diva Endless Knitted Cardi/Shawl

So, whatcha think??
Personally, I like it! It's fun to wear, warm, snuggly...and pretty, too! Actually today is cool enough for me to wear it, which I did, on a trip to Hobby Lobby!
Here is a shot of the side view.

And finally the back, which I think is the prettiest part of the sweater.

Getting some pictures have been challenging. My husband does not like the camera. After trying to have him take my picture I opted for my remote control!

I don't think I shared my scarf with you guys. Unfortunately I have run short of yarn and waiting on my local yarn store to trace me down a skein. It is a ripple crochet done in this gorgeous Noro!
It is going to be so pretty! I cannot wait to get it finished. But in the meantime I have to find something to keep my fingers busy! So I grabbed two skeins of self striping sock yarn at Hobby Lobby to keep my fingers occupied. Of course, it is not as extravagant as the Noro Yarn, but I think it is pretty and am curious how it will work up.

For now, I am going back to some card making, and chili making, too...perfect for this cool rainy Saturday!

Great job on the cardi. You should get a lot of wear out of it. Beuatiful scarf. Don't you just love that Noro yarn. I could eat it up right off the shelf. Have always contemplated trying it, how did it hook up.

Hubbie's and cameras don't really go together unless they are taking pictures of mountains or sports...same problem here.

The cardi is awesome....I would rock out in that at SAFF!

You might want to check at Knit Picky in Winston-Salem...they had lots of Noro last week when I was over there.

Still loving the cardi. You did a FAB job on it. The ripple scarf looks gorgeous with the NORO yarn. I always love the color combo's they put together.

Waiting patiently here for the cool weather. It's finally getting here on Tuesday! YEA!!!!!!

Hi Dawn, I've followed your blog for awhile and just had to congratulate you on that beautiful cardigan! WOW. Cute jeans and hair too! And I love, love, love the scarf. Is it a self striping yarn that you are using or are you switching colors? I only know how to crochet and just this year I've started trying to take it to the next level. I still feel like a novice in some ways, but I'm so addicted to it I know I will go far :)

OH my goodness! It's beautiful!!! I'm so amazed at how quickly you work - it takes me about a year to knit a scarf:)

hello -
just found your blog via fB.
I have a question about your scarf - do you know of a knitted pattern that looks similar? I am trying to pick an afghan pattern, and this looks very much like what I'm after.
Any comments would be a big help.
thanks for sharing your work - bellissimo!

Lovely!! What yarn did you use and did you have to adjust gauge at all?

Gaye said...

Hi - I also would like to know what yarn you used & if you altered the pattern at all. I am thinking about using Misty Alpaca Chunky,and wear a size 2X.
