Pattern: Grannie Smith Cardigan by moi
Yarn: Lanas Puras Melosa Fingering 3 skeins of Eggplant
Needles: Size 4
Started: June 2007
Finished: October 2007
Pattern Notes: This sweater is just a slight variation to the original Grannie in Kid silk. I changed up the yarn, made the sleeves a bit shorter, and added one more button. The wool gives the sweater a bit tighter fit than the kid silk, which I really like.
I have created a special version of Grannie Smith with all the details for working it up in the Lanas Puras yarn - which is up for sale at One Planet Yarn and Fiber. If you have purchased the pattern in the past from me and would like to have this version emailed to you, please drop me a line at: neoknits AT yahoo DOT com. Please include your paypal email address when writing.
And we have a busy day here at neoknits with another Secret Reveal long in the making! I made this sweater over a year ago for Hip Knits, but then it got pulled to be included in Kerrie's Yarn Forward Magazine. Sometimes patience brings better opportunities I suppose! :)

Victoria is a 3/4 sleeve cardigan with a neckline that starts out as a crew and ends in a V. Mesh stitch lace panels running up each side seam add a touch of interest. Worked up in Aran weight cashmere, it's a quick satisfying knit for even the busiest knitter.
You can find this pattern in Issue #3 of Yarn Forward Magazine.
