|My Kasha from A Stitch in Time, Volume 2|
Isn't this cardigan just ridiculous?! As you probably know from my previous posts including it I have fallen pretty hard for this completed cardigan (Kasha from A Stitch in Time Volume 2) and I can't wear it enough. It's definitely my favourite new knit of this year! A lot of you expressed an interest in it so I thought I'd give you a closer look...
|The original Kasha|
Although the pattern may look complicated I actually found it fairly simple once I had gotten used to the repeat. It was really fun working on something intricate for a change as I've been facousing on colour work quite a lot recently. I wouldn't recommend it to a beginner as I think it would be a bit overwhelming and it doesn't grow particularly quickly, but if you're a fairly competent knitter and can read patterns well then you shouldn't have any problems. Give it a go, it's too pretty not to!
Here are a couple of close-up shots to emphasise the prettiness...
This is the first pattern I have worked with from A Stitch in Time Volume 2 and I loved working with it, it's a beautiful book and I'm already planning my next project. All in all this was a really fun project, using a great pattern and resulting in a gorgeous knit, so I couldn't be happier!

Have any of you knitted anything from A Stitch in Time Volume 2? I'd love to hear about it :)
