I honestly can't remember the last time I picked up the knitting needles for myself. Sure I make little things here and there. I made a Little Something over the weekend, but that was crochet (a flower to accessorize an outfit for a wedding at the end of the month.) But I haven't made a Big Something. Last year, I knitted a cute sweater. This year, I think I've been feeling cardigan-y but I've been stuck on the idea of some regular old grandma cardigan
Over time, I finally came up with what I'd like. I can picture it in my head and all that, but it's always nice to see if there is a pattern to save me from doing all the requisite measuring and calculating. The closest I could find, via Rav, was the Trina Cardigan, a lovely pattern by Hillary of The Yarniad. It's exactly up my alley; the stand-up collar, the raglan shaping, the 3/4 sleeves, and 3 buttons at the top only. Plus, it's free! There are some other details I want to work out to my own preferences, but so far this one is hitting the spot.
Next up, yarn for Trina.
