The Cardigan Project

You voted and the results are IN! After counting all of the Facebook votes, Blog comments, e-mails, and even word of mouth we have a winner!

Cria! Isn't it cute?! It looks simple and that makes for a great first sweater project. And if your choice didn't win, no worries! I intend to make all four of them in the next year so at some point they will ALL be featured! See? Everyone wins! (Especially me, I get four sweaters!)

Now, your next challenge! After a lot of weighing of opinions and browsing the information-filled interweb I've decided Madelinetosh Pashmina is the perfect yarn for this project. It's a little pricey but it should hold up well. But the color? Well, I can't choose it without your help!

I've narrowed down the colors, and of course I have a favorite but I'd like your input as well. Take a look!
Maple Leaf

These color shots are borrowed from the Happy Knits Website, I will be purchasing my yarn from them as they are my Favorite Madelinetosh Retailer!

Voting will Close on Saturday, August 27th at 8 PM PST. Vote Away!


  1. Hmmmm. Before I scrolled down to see your yarn pics, I was picturing a dark blue-ish color. I thought it would make a beautiful contrast with your hair, so I guess my official vote is Flashdance. However, I love the Maple Leaf also!

  2. i'm going with maple leaf! i effing love it!

  3. Happiness!

    The name says it all (plus, yeah, that beautiful color)

  4. If you're still taking votes for colors, I'd say either Happiness or Oceana. Both of those would contrast FANTASTICALLY with your hair. I think Happiness would be a bit of a better choice.
