Audrey in Oz

Audrey in Unst has been in my queue for quite a long time and finally I’ve knitted it!

I don’t usually mix colors, unless it is requested by the pattern – like in fair isle for example – but I wanted to give this combo a try. I had a skein of Traveller marked as Oddity (which I bought from a fellow ravelrer) that matched perfectly a skein I got in a Pound of ¬†Traveller bag so I wanted to use them together. Since they are a sort of “one off ” skeins I had to mix them with some other color. Stranger’s Home, a beautiful blurple, fit the bill. I had another couple of skeins that I could have used, but the contrast wasn’t enough. I’m definitely happy with how this cardigan turned out.

The pattern, by Gudrun Johnston, is flawless and very easy to follow. I really like the sleeves’ construction and the fit is perfect. The twisted ribbing has been a little boring, but it is worth every single yawn: I find it very elegant and add a nice finish to the garment. I had to do some modifications as I didn’t have as much yarn as required, so I slightly shortened the bust and the sleeves too. I just have a bit of blurple left which I might use for another project.

So, thumbs up for Audrey!
