This is the Tea Leaves Cardigan, however, I'm choosing to call mine "Earl Grey", for obvious reasons. My sister gave me 5 balls of Malabrigo Worsted in the "Polar Moon" Colourway (sigh!) for Christmas, and I immediately cast on for this on Boxing day.
The colours are so subtle and look completely different in alternate light. I was actually a bit concerned when I opened it, because at my parent's place, it looked like a baby blue colour ... even my sister thought so! However, when I got it home and wound it up, it became the gorgeous dove grey that you see above. There are also hints of a sea green and a bit of a lavendar pink, which add to it's beauty and lustre. There are 3 of 1 dyelot and 2 of another, so I am alternating every 2nd row to avoid pooling. I was somewhat surprised that the vendor didn't make that known on the website ... I mean, really -- if someone is buying multiples of the same colour, wouldn't you think that they're making 1 large project and that they'd need all the same dyelot? On many of the other ebay websites, they will flat out tell you if they are different dyelots. Anyway, enough ranting -- the colour is gorgeous, and the FEEL is unbelieveable!
I'm past the arm holes and am currently knitting the body. The ruched design at the yoke is pure genius and so easy! Combo of increases and decreases, plus changing of needle size. Can I just tell you how much I am loving this pattern and the knitting thereof?!! I mean really ... how could I not!
Malabrigo + a great pattern = bliss!!!
