Thank you for sending so many kind thoughts and so much support my way. I appreciate it more than I can say.

The upside of my knitting frenzy is that I actually finished some projects, and my favorite may be the Hitofude cardigan. It's a lightweight, lacy cardigan, and I made mine out of linen so it will be cool enough to wear during our hot Kentucky summers. 

This sweater is slip of a thing and so comfortable that I sometimes forget I'm wearing it. It's so comfortable that I wore it every single day the week after I finished it. I tend to wear a t-shirt and jeans or a simple dress--it's my mom uniform--because I don't have time to put much thought into my day-to-day wear. But I do like to feel put together, and the Hitofude does just that. I hope this will be a sweater I can wear for years to come.


  1. This is just lovely. I might have to pop this in the queue. Perfect for an Australian spring/summer too I reckon. So glad your knitting has proved to be a is a good friend to have.

  2. The cardigan is just lovely! I'm so sorry for your loss. As Elizabeth Zimmermann said, "“Knit on, with confidence and hope, through all crises.”

  3. Every time I see this cardigan, I fall in love with it all over again. Yours is perfect ~ linen is such a smart choice ~ and I only aspire to knit one just like it ... someday!

  4. I am so sorry to hear about your loss, Allison. My thoughts are with you. And I'm glad you're finding a bit of comforting in knitting. It really is good therapy.
    And Hitofude! Every time I see one, I want to cast on right away. Yours turned out lovely in the linen. I'm definitely keeping that yarn in mind if I ever finally get around to casting on for one!

  5. Adorable! It looks like it will work for you in any situation. So sorry to read of your loss. I know what you are going through and my heart hurts for you. Take care.

  6. You are gorgeous. That cardigan looks wonderful on you and must feel so good.
