my rocky coast

My Rocky Coast Cardigan is finally finished (only four and a half months later than I anticipated)! After I completed my Christmas knitting, I settled in for some quality time with that second sleeve. It didn't take long to knit up and gave me the momentum to knit the ribbed border around the front and collar.

Already I can tell this will be one of my most worn knitted items. I've worn it four times in the past week! It goes with every outfit, keeps me warm, and makes me feel cozy all day.

I took my new cardigan along on a weekend getaway to Nashville to celebrate the last birthday of my twenties. Of course I had to stop at a yarn shop (it was my birthday, after all), and the ladies at Bliss Yarns recognized my sweater as a Rocky Coast right away and gave it lots of compliments. It felt kind of like Cheers, only nerdier and knitting themed. Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your sweater's name...

What are you making this week? Any finished objects?


  1. It's funny because I was just thinking about knitting one this morning! Yours is beautiful! Yes, I have a FO. I will post it tomorrow after I gift it (baby knit!!!) and I'm working on my Hedgerow Socks besides that (and thinking about what will be next!)

  2. I LOVE this, wish I could knit. If this was in a shop I'd be buying it. Might have to buy some knitting needles. Well done enjoy your first wear

  3. Just beautiful! It looks so cozy, and I think that Lark tends to wear quite well. What an inspiring project! I've been tempted to cast on a Rocky Coast, but I've been rather put off by many people's comments that the sleeves tend to be tight (and my arms are by no means slender).

  4. Looking great! I wish mine fit that well.

  5. I faved your cardigan on Ravelry as I love it so much!

  6. This is so beautiful it looks like it is out of a store! I wish I could knit like you! Great job; and perfect for these freezing days :)

  7. I love it! You did an extraordinary job on this cardi! Your simile of Cheers made me smile.

  8. It's beautiful, Allison! I'm slowly (oh so slowly) working on mine as well.

    Happy Belated Birthday. :)

    The Cheers bit is too much!
