finished object Monday

Finally! That's the Brigitte cardigan done and off the needles. The ends are woven in, but it definitely needs blocking to even out the colourwork yoke. I ran out of green yarn - short yardage seems to be a trend with this David Grains Lopi - so the neckband is a couple of rows shorter than it should be.

There's enough Lopi for one more cardigan, but I've promised Gavin to give it a rest for a few months. The lint from that stuff is just unbelievable! Instead I think I'll finetune my Spenser cat mat pattern and work on a few other ideas. Gavin reports that when he woke in the middle of the night, our cat was still lying on the first sample mat. She seems to really like it!
