Sienna Cardigan and Go to Tokyo




I am now completing the left front of the cardigan and v-shaping the neck. The front cable pattern is simple and easy and look quite good.

I have planned to go to Tokyo with my parent and sister on this Friday for 5 days. Now is busy to exchange the YEN and travel insurance. We travel by ourselves and our purpose (my sister and I) is to visit the Yuzawaya Shop - one of Japan largest handicraft shop. It sells fabric, japan traditional fabric, yarns, and all kind of handicraft material etc. This website is in Japanese language, but you can click the "corporate brochure" for a simple version in English. I also don't know Japanese language, just guess the meaning of their Chinese character. Hope that I can have a big harvest and will show after my return.

Have a great time! I've been to this store before, it's a dream come true, two floors full of yarn. You can buy this membership card ( about US$5) and have a 10% discount on your total purchase.

Have great fun! My dream is also to visit there one of these days. I like the Sienna Cardigan you're now knitting. I'm sure it'll turn out very nice.

Lovely colorway for the Sienna Cardigan. I have been working madly today trying to get all the finishing done as my buttons are waiting to be sewn on. I have enjoyed this quick but flattering pattern.

Did you post a pic of the finished sweater? Would love to see it all done.
