Today, marks the second time that I have worn the Beulah Cardigan, which is a pattern from the Knitscene Spring 2012 issue. I absolutely love this cardigan and feel it is just so flattering. But, I think I don’t wear it as much as I can because it’s definitely one of those cardigans that people remember. And I don’t want anyone to be like “She sure wears that all the time”. LOL
I usually like to pair the cardigan with navy blue and a pop of red. However, in the future I will play with different looks with this cardi. Also, I have yet to wear it with some jeans and that may look cute too.
I am also wearing some crochet earrings that I made from the Crochet Today May/June 2012 issue.

First off, forgive my hiatus. I have not stop knitting and crocheting. Actually, I have done quite a few projects since I was last on. So, let’s get started…
I finally finished my Beulah Cardigan from Knitscene Magazine, Spring 2012. I started back in March and put the project down for a minute. I then picked it back up and started working on it feverishly.
I am in love with the results and I am now contemplating making another one in pink (my fave color). My mother requested a Beulah Cardigan but, I am currently working on a project for her and I am trying to get started on some Fall/Winter projects soon. So, I don’t think I’ll have the time. We shall see…
Yarn – Vanna’s Glamour in Topaz for the Main Color and Vanna’s Glamour in Sapphire for the embroidery. I used about 3 1/2 balls for the main color and just some scap yarn for the embroidery.
Gauge – My gauge was close to perfect.
Needles – Size 4 Straight needles, Size 6 Straight needles
Level of Difficulty – Advanced Easy, The embroidery was something new for me but, once I got in the rhythm it wasn’t bad at all.
As soon as I saw this cardigan in the Knitscene Spring 2012 issue I knew I wanted to knit it. I have stared at it forever and have been imagining the color that I want to knit it in. What drew me to the cardigan was the simplicity of the it, the gorgeous embroidery, and its shape (I like short-waisted cardigans.)
So, I’m thinking that I will purchase the yarn for this project this week and begin on it soon.
I think this will be the perfect Spring/Summer cardigan to where over my dresses. The colors I’m thinking of are yellow or orange or purple. However, I am still trying to decide…
