The pre-post, the first post, if you will, of my epic knitting project, Meg Swanson’s Phoenix Cardigan.
I had the yarn custom dyed for me by Twilight Knits, because at the time I had the money to spend. She finished it up and sent it along, and now I have my lovely yarn for it. I’m quite pleased with it, and both are very ‘me’ yarns.
The variegated will make the actual phoenix:

I did cast on and knit most the first row, but then my needle broke when I looked at it funny. KnitPicks has sent a replacement ( yay! ), but for now there’s a small hiatus while I wait.
But the yarns do look nice together:
((Yes, there’s much more than that. It’s currently sitting on my couch in a friendly pile. I even have gone crazy, and I’m trying knitting from skein so that I take even more care and slow down more. I don’t want to mess up.))
And the lovely lady at Twilight Knits sent me a set of pattern keepers with cupcakes on too. :3
Now I’m off to go to the doctor to find out why my strep is still firmly lodged in my throat despite a week of antibiotics.
