Once upon a time...

... I started a sweater and neglected it forever and ever and ever and ever.

But then a magic knitting fairy came along and gave me the urge to knit on it again...You might remember - this is Fable - I'm knitting it in Fluffy Cat. As you know, Fluffy is one of my favorite shawl yarns, and I've got to admit, it's just as nice for sweaters.

Due to the fibre content (alpaca/silk/cashmere) I wouldn't recommend it for a sweater that has a structure, but for this light, flowy cardi, it's perfect.

I've really got my mojo back on this project- I've just divided for the sleeves and body - le'ts see if I can finish it by the end of the month!

Looks like it'd be an awesome sweater for those overly air conditioned places (like my work). I think you'll get it done in the next couple of weeks!

Sweet combination! I can see where the shawl yarn will be perfect for the sweater.

This sweater has a very pretty lace pattern. You will finish by the end of the month for sure. Happy knitting!
