KCWC Day 1: Color Blocked Cardi

KCWC Day Numero Uno is a color-blocked Greenpoint Cardigan!  I’ve had this version on my mind since I decided to do a cardigan pattern.  Somehow it was better in my head, where I was envisioning a more subtle ‘ombre’ look (please pronounce ‘ombre’ in the voice of Antonio Bandaras, as I intended).  But I just…
