Notes

My Lush is done, and I’m utterly thrilled with it!

The pattern has me intrigued, and I really like the twist on the top-down construction with the lace yoke worked first. I knitted without mods, and it fits perfectly!

I used Superwash DK from Sweet Georgia Yarns, and a Lush cardigan in lush green: win! I really, really love this yarn. It’s simply gorgeous. The buttons are vintage, and, like the cherry on top, I found me some vintage earrings to go with them.

Notes:
The pattern called for 1150 yds, but I used less than 900. I don’t mind - this means that I have over a skein left of gorgeousness - but it might be a helpful note if anyone is afraid to run out of yarn.
