I finished the linen cardigan, and I am in love with this one. The yarn was sturdy, almost stiff to knit, but softened a bit on blocking, and sewed up easily, then I washed it again and it has a softer feel again, but not droopy or stretchy like cotton can be. I wore it today at work and was pleased with the comfort and sheen. This will not be the only linen garment that I knit!
This is the kind of fabric that can be worn all year round. It will look even better with a little white camisole underneath, but it's too cold right now rof that, so the turtleneck will have to do!
