Waiting for Ella

**If you are looking for the GIVEAWAY and PODCAST, click here**

Ever since last month’s teaser from Jennifer Woodhouse (of Woodhouse Knits), I have been having these vague and shadowy dreams of the *perfect* little lace and cable cardigan. Her tiny sleeve snippet was all I needed. And it’s perhaps why all of the other sweaters in my Rav favorites bundle have lost their glow for me (at least for the moment). Today, the pattern dropped and Ella became a sweet, sweet reality: next sweater sorted, cable and lace galore (my favorite combination), and light spring/fall wardrobe staple identified.

I’m going to knit it up in the recommended yarn (for once!) and there is even a discount on theElla pattern site for anyone purchasing the yarn from Polka Dot Sheep. Have at it people! Ella has finally arrived!

Having knit Jennifer’s patterns before, I know that this one will be well-constructed; there will be minimal errata, and the design will be stunning. I also know that this will require some skill and concentration; lace and cable combos take some time, but they are SO worth it.

If you are interested in Jennifer Woodhouse’s work, you should totally join her newsletter (discount codes!! pattern previews!!), check out her Ravelry group, join her KAL for Ella, and generally peruse her patterns. I have found her to be very responsive to pattern queries and, she’s just all-around funky and cool.
