Orange You Glad?

I frogged a shrug that was knit last year and decided to re-use the yarn for this… the Hexacomb Cardigan. The shrug, I’m afraid, would never have been worn. I just couldn’t get my head around the instructions and it fit poorly. Since the Pacific Northwest region has decided to skip summer this year I’m sure I’ll get plenty of use out of this sweater. Okay… it is 70 degrees today, but gray and cloudy. Yesterday was beautiful! Which, coincidentally, was perfect for my husband’s niece who was married last night and now off to a luxurious honeymoon in the Caribbean. Do you think she would mind if we smuggled ourselves into one of their suitcases?
I’m really into re-using and using up what’s on hand at the moment. There has been much cutting and sewing going on in addition to the knitting. Besides, what else is there to do when summer refuses to arrive?
Hope you all are enjoying your summer!
