Contest Three

Summer is fast approaching, with her the heat (and for some "lucky" few, humidity). Thinking of knitting in my hammock, I must look to summer tops and fibers that add elegance with summer wear-ability. For the third knitter's coffee swap contest, I have chosen a short sleeved cardigan pattern from Classic Elite Yarns, the "Flash Garter Stitch Cardigan" designed by Tian Foley. The coffee-inspired yarn, "Rock", from South West Trading Company, is made up of 40% soysilk, 30% wool, and 30% hemp and the colorway name is "Thom" #759. Smooth and rich, like my coffee. The accessory buttons to accent this cardigan are by Mish Mosh Art by Suzanne Lappan found on Etsy. They are made of handpainted polymer clay and stamped in a graphic swirl design. Each measures about 1 inch by 1 1/8 inch. Divine!
