I finally did some serious knitting this past week. After seeing Adele's fabulous Crossed Cardie in Jaeger Alpaca soon to be completed, I bought myself some Phildar Lambswool in Noir and the Spring Tendances 05 to make this cardie as well.

Actually, I've been trying to find a similar looking top (with the deep V crossed fronts) since last year! And whenever I see one, there ought to be something wrong with it. Like in the wrong colors, or sleeves not short/long enough. Too this and Too that. So. If I handknit one, then there would be no more complaints. Right? (Probably except on my own handicraft)

Phildar Lambswool: Noir. 51% lambswool 49% acrylic.
But since it's NOIR, future photos of knitting progresses will be
dull and boring. I can't help it, I wear too much black.

And of course some Phildar knitting mags.
Tendances Spring 04 and 05 in English version.
Also Jean Greenhowe's Knitted Toy Animals Leaflet.

I've already completed the back piece of the cardigan, and just started the ribbing for the front right piece. I hope photos of my knitting in black would show up OK. I'll post my progress once this front piece is done, and we shall see from there.
