I did finish my Sundew Cardi a week ago.

I even wore it to work one day last week.

Preview of coming attractions:

It’s been an odd week. Loki is exhausted.


  1. Your Sundew is beautiful. Can’t wait to see what your lovely colorwork becomes. I am looking for some motifs to use in sweater yoke and these look like great contenders.

  2. Marietta says:

    The colors in your “coming attractions” are my favorites. That is going to be a beautiful “whatever it is”……

  3. Great knit on Sundew and glad you got to wear it this season.

  4. The Sundew is classic. Just beautiful.

  5. Sundew is gorgeous. I love cables. Too hot here for heavy sweaters, Love the colorwork.

  7. Catherine S. says:

    Oh, Rona! My first Fair Isle project, knit from the first pattern. Love, love, love the colors and motifs! Enjoy every stitch, Wendy.

  8. I like your button choice on Sundew. They are just the right size. Gorgeous sweater by the way.

  10. GJ on the cardi, but I must say, I’m loving the colorwork, esp. the check section, almost looks like bramble berry/trinity stitch (with which I’m presently obsessed: tea cozy, cap, lapghan). pretty motifs and lovely earthy tones. look forward to seeing FO. Have fun!
