the kc cardi has been a favorite of mine for years. 10 ply loro piana cashmere joy. as the yarn was running out i decided to use the last of the pecan for a sweater for me. it's so rare i actually make something specific for me. if you saw the inside of this sweater it would make you questions my skills. however, it was knit with balls and balls of yarn that then needed to be covered in embroidery. pretty on the outside....not so cute on the inside. but, i love it!
worn with some bakers (my go to on mornings when i just want to be comfy. the benning hat and givenchy stripe snake skin boots. swoon. i didn't have enough yarn for the pockets so used other balls of yarn and trim to embroider the patch pockets and the hem of the sleeves.
sometimes scrappy remnants can work.
