effortless cahdigan and hahvahd yahd

January 1, 2011

whats up boston?! after christmas this year we took a family vacation to boston to “look at colleges.” after lots of “light” reading to finish Portrait of a Lady for my english elective we ventured to the Isabella Stewart Gardener Museum. On our way to the T we found this surprise:

they have a Sweeney Field!

and then we ventured to Hahvahd Yahd.

where apparently they don’t pahk their cahs.
but anywho, once i finished the book i got lots of knitting done!

My Effortless Cardigan: I finished the body and am halfway through the first sleeve. Only the collar, sides and second sleeve to do after I finish that. I’m going to be cutting it close with the yarn supply though — we’ll see how it goes.

lots of pictures:

plus, pom poms and braid will be added using Malabrigo Silky Merino in Dill
