Unraveled Wednesday | Tempting Spring.

When I finished All the Love, just before our trip, I had planned to start a spring cardigan once we were home. But when I checked the weather forecast on Saturday, it seemed like I might have time for one more cool weather sweater.  I have this weird thing where I need to wear something I knit for myself when I finish it, to bond with it, I guess ... otherwise I seem to never wear it. So knitting "just for the season" can be tricky. I'd made peace with leaving Comfort Fade Cardi until next fall, but I gave into the temptation on Sunday. and I cast on.

Ravelry details here
I split for the sleeves yesterday and I'm already halfway down the body (well, except for 3" of ribbing at the end). Isn't that fade cool? must admit, the 36 rows in between the fade sections are the slowest part of the sweater ... especially now that it's just plain stockinette.

This is a very straightforward topdown seamless cardigan knit in a DK yarn. In other words, it shouldn't take too long, which is a good thing (#BangOutAFade).

I just checked the 15-day forecast
The weather at the end of next week will be perfect for its debut.

Of course spring is a fickle season. This sweater just might shepherd in some (really) warm weather!

Head on over to Kat's to see what others are unraveling about today šŸ˜Š.

It's indeed lovely...and now for Fall, you can knit one in the same colors - would you wear ?- as shown on Ravelry. Looking forward to seeing you model the finished one, just in time for next weekend!
Cheers~

I am not a real fan of the "fade" trend, but I really like your version. Those colors are so nice together -- and I'm sure it will be perfect for fickle-spring! Knit on, Mary! I'm sure you'll be able to wear it yet this season. XO

This is the first "fade" I've liked as your colors blend beautifully. The style will be lovely to wear in appropriate weather! I will never bang out anything, but this one would be worth the effort!

our weather is wintry and windy. I love the colors of your sweater and you are a speedy knitter. Plain stockinette = tv knitting, it's the only way for me to get through it.
