cabled cardigan

cable-cardigan

you might find it hard to believe, seeing as it hasn’t really been mentioned, but the cabled cardigan is done! Honestly, the only reason I take so long to finish a sweater is that, with beer being taxed at 86% in utah, i have to save up to buy the celebratory drink!

Man wird vielleicht erstaunt, da ich ihn kaum erwähnt habe, aber der Cabled Cardigan ist fertig!. Leider muss ich langsam stricken um mir meinen feierlichen Umtrunk zu leisten, da Bier im Utah auf 86% besteuert ist.

this has a super broad collar that will keep the back of my neck warm once the temperatures have dropped 30 degrees

bobbles are not necessarily my thing

    Looks great! I’ll bet it will be great this winter. 86%? How much does that make a 6 pack of “normal” beer (by that I mean not imported or from a microbrewery)?

    please take the beer outside for a shot of the sweater in full sun. i would like to see you with sweater in its entirety enjoying the hard earned beer. 🙂

    Ich probiere es nochmal, irgendwie klappt das nicht mit dem kommentieren hier…
    Der Cardigan sieht klasse aus! Respekt, daß du ihn in der Sommerhitze fertig gestrickt hast. Darf ich fragen, was ein 6-Pack Bier kostet?
