Tempest

I've never been very keen on knitting cotton cardigans so I thought I would try to make a lightweight one out of wool more suited to British climes than Italy. I liked this pattern but after ordering the rather expensive wool online felt quite guilty. No need, the company phoned me up to say they were out of stock. Guilt was replaced by frustration until I realised the yardage was the same as common or garden sock wool. And I have plenty of that. Just three balls of cheap but soft Mondial sock wool was all it took. Knitted on larger needles than is usual the result is featherlight and just what I was looking for. Think I'll make another one.
