Alpengluhen is finished! I knit this in Queensland Collection Kathmandu Aran, in Slate Gray. This yarn is a merino/silk/cashmere tweedy yarn. I think it’s perfect for a cardigan of this type.
I didn’t make any modifications to this pattern. If I made this again I think I would make this a little longer – it’s written bottom-up so I probably would just add a couple more inches between the bottom ribbing and the start of shaping.
As usual I did not make buttonholes or attach any buttons. I think I’m going to get something from Jul Designs for this (and other) cardigans – I’m still probably mostly going to wear this open, though.
For next week I might have some socks finished – both my pairs on the needles are past the heels. I’m really hoping to get all the way through the gradient on my Monkeys, even though that means they’re going to be *really* tall – we’ll see.
