I can't believe that I haven't posted about this cardigan yet. It's the Chevron lace cardigan I started back home, during those uncertain limbo days early in November, when we were home-bound due to a weather alert (here). I continued working on it in the weeks that followed, through a bout of sickness (here), during the hectic preparations for this last minute trip to the US (here), and also during quiet moments by the fireplace. And I finished it here in the US, the last touch being a button from Granny's box of buttons.
Who'd have thought back then, as I unwound some yarn from that large cone of burgundy alpaca and hooked the foundation row, that this cardigan would end up keeping me warm here, on the other side of the Pond, on the night we'll say good-bye to a year that has been good to my family, and welcome the New Year in the company of our American relatives?
My wish today is that, like this cardigan, the paths that my family and yours take in the coming year, even when they begin uncertain (or rough), take us in the end to a good place.
Happy New Year!
