Carol Feller KAL


I'm so excited to be participating in a KAL hosted by knitwear designer Carol Feller. I bought a book of hers last summer called "Short Rows" and I fell in love with her esthetic then and there.
Here is the sweater that I'm currently knitting. It's called Santa Rosa and it's beyond gorgeous. I've ordered a lot from Bluemoon Fibrearts. Check out their blog post about the KAL here.

While waiting for my yarn to arrive I started knitting a different Carol Feller design called Traveller. Not as feminine as the Santa Rosa Cardi but still gorgeous and so wearable. As are all her designs. 
I think the yarn in the Santa Rosa cardigan is the big appeal. I'm all about gradients right now and Man! This kit does not disappoint. Just look at how these colours transition in my chosen colour way - scarlet begonias. 
So stunning. I'm past the yoke now and I'm hoping to do a lot on this sweater this weekend. We shall see.
