Malabrigo Maternity

It's been finished for a while now, but I could never get around to taking a picture of my Maternity Cardi. Thanks to my mom, the photog, here it is in all of its Black Forest Malabrigo glory....

Show me your bump

I adore this yarn. It's so soft, it comes in awesome colours and well, it's from Uruguay - need I say more!? Last year The Beadery was getting rid of all of their yarn with an amazing sale. I stashed as much of it as I could. Although the skeins were the same colour, the dye lot was slightly off. Thanks to Lisa's bright idea -- rotate the skeins to keep the colour consistant, it all worked out. A bit of a pain in the culo, but well worth it in the end.

And thanks to Cosmicpluto for her inspirational top down cardigan pattern (no sewing!). I followed it up until slip stitches for sleeves on a holder. Knowing that I was preggers when I started it I decided to increase (instead of decrease) down the body to give it more of an A-line drape. I love it so much, I could sleep in it! Or at least siesta!
