"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication."- Leonardo da Vinci


Summer sweater KAL, mission complete!

It’s done! I am so proud! A few hiccups along the way, but I’ve been able to overcome all these little obstacles, and I’ve learned quite a bit (my favorite being the super-stretchy-bind off). It’s my first adult size project, and even though it took 3 months to complete, I am hoping that with time I will get faster.
I convinced my husband this morning to come to the nearest park and take pictures of me modeling the cardi, and he did really well I think (I can’t blame him for my frizzy hair, right?).
Now….feel free to shower me with compliments..;-p


  1. Oh my goodness, it's beautiful! Love, love, love the color! Your husband is a much better photographer than mine is. We always end up getting into a fight when I ask him to take a picture and it doesn't turn out exactly like I had envisioned in my mind :)

  3. Erika, did I forget to mention the argument? Hihi, but thank you, always good to hear your work looks good.

  4. Hi dear Monica!

    Congrats on your so beautiful cardigan.

    I must say that I am a little shy and the most I got was this photograph on my About page...http://www.tricotaria.com/p/about.html

    I'm so happy and proud of you.

    See you soon dear friend.
