Saved from myself!

wrapcardi2

I'm still working on the left front of the wrap cardi (Vogue Knitting Holiday 2006 - links to pictures are in Monday's post). Fortunately, Elann came through and yesterday afternoon the extra yarn I needed showed up. Right colorway, right dyelot, right amount of yarn for finishing the project! Woo Hoo!

As you can see in this picture, the right section of the front is worked over a single strand of yarn on one size of needles and the left section (which will be the center of the cardi) is worked with a double strand of yarn and a larger size of needles. So yes, I'm working with two balls of yarn and two sets of needles. And yes, it's REALLY annoying to work like this. I can kind of get into a rhythm with it, but it's slow going. I typically work both fronts at the same time when I do a cardi, but there's no way I could put up with that much going on at once, so I have to knit the left front, then go back and do the right front. After all this, the sleeves should fly.

Have a great weekend!

Oh I feel your pain, I just did a similar project... although that was socks, but still working with that much yarn and the differen needles. It'll be worth it in the end though! Looks great so far :)

It looks great, but seems cumbersome to knit. I like the cardigan. Can't wait to see yours finished.
