That’s what I should rename this site. The Cardigan Blog. More on this later.
First, thank you for all the well wishes! I was fully recovered soon after my last post, and have been enjoying Spring and other life goodness. Some weeks back, we got a new chair and table to match our adirondack settee, making a cozy patio even better:
A great place to lounge, yogurt yumminess, HP and the Deathly Hallows on its release day (thanks Amazon!), and New England Knits. Very happy making! I also got an iPad a few weeks back, and have, unsurprisingly, been ensconced. Fishdom was my master for about a week.
In the month since my last post (egads!), I have worked on a new cardigan. Shock and awe, I know. I am nearing the finish line on a Goodale in Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool:
I made it a bit longer, and knitted a garter hem instead of ribbing. How long the sleeves are depends on how much yarn I have left. I’d like to be 3/4 length, but it will be a close thing.
I worked here and there on the Aryn Cardi, and now it has…pockets!
I heart the pockets. I really want this as a FO, but the stitch pattern, while easily memorized, still requires a certain amount of attention. I was crazing stockinette. Hence, Goodale. I will probably finish this cardi about mid-September when it’s a 100F.
I’ve also worked up another sooper secret sample knit. And that’s about that. I hope you are all enjoying the Spring weather and finding time to knit!
