Little Red Cardi!

redcardi2


Once I got the rolling issue figured out, this new cardi is moving along nicely. At this point I've finished with the buttonholes (and marked the placement for the buttons later), I've started the front neck shaping, and I'm 4 cm from dividing the fronts and back at the armholes. I need to go back and weave in some ends where I joined new balls of yarn, because I can tell that when I get this done I'm going to want to wear it - not mess around with finishing a bunch of ends.

Thanks for all the wonderful comments on the sweater yesterday (and Finn's dancing skills). A couple of you asked if I would be writing up the pattern and since it's really just an adaption of the raglan design from Ann Budd's Knitter's Handy Guide to Sweater Patterns, I won't be making a pattern of it. If you wanted to try making one for yourself, I'd recommend using my blog notes and that book and just going for it. It's not a difficult design!

Yummy color! The first thing I ever knit had a hem. Clearly, I need to revisit the technique! I can tell it's going to be loverly.

A sweater and a half in less than two weeks? Wow. You're knitting like the wind!
