My Cria

The Cria is finished ~!
My that took a long time.... { my notes here }.   I've been seriously looking at sweaters to make myself, and well before that happens I knew that the Cria had to get finished. What was taking me so so long, was the fact that I didn't need to wear it. But also , , it was the pockets. Next time, I definietly won't put them on there. But who knows, I may find them quite handy whilst wearing this.
It's blocking now. I was told that Malabrigo stretches vertically quite a bit. This is my first time washing Malabrigo..{you should have seen the water, it was soooo dirty!!} I do suppose I carried it round a bit over these knitting months. Plus the red pindan dirt here does get into everything. You should see our whites.
So this is my first sweater, hooray!


  1. Oh my goodness! It looks fabulous. Can you notice the change of colour since washing it? I'm sure those pockets will come into their own and you'll be glad that you persevered. Gorgeous! Now onto the next :)

  2. how lovely! yes, very 70's :) i love pockets and can hardly live without them, i didn't realize cria had them, they are not on many patterns! i hope you wear your new sweater in happiness and good health! you are so cute! xxx lori
