Red Cardi Body


I'm to the point now where I'll do a 3 needle bind off to join the fronts to the back at the shoulders, but I decided not to try it last night before I went to bed since that's a good recipe for weird twisted mobius shoulders. Then I've got to figure out how I'm going to do the sleeves and I can get started on them! I'd love to get this finished soon so I can wear it. Oh, and the markers on the left front? Those are for the buttons. Since I knit the buttonholes into the front bands as I went, it made sense to just mark the other side for the buttons at the same time.

Clearly, it's going to have to be blocked, and I'll probably block the body while I knit the sleeves and then block the sleeves before I sew the whole thing together. Theoretically this should control the curling and make sewing up easier.

The cardi looks like it will turn out so well. I know what you mean about working on something right before bedtime. I cannot count how many times I've tried to finish something that should be quite quick right before bed and making a huge mess of it. Just the other night I destroyed a row in a shawl pattern because I was too tired to read it correctly. I ended up frogging the entire thing and starting again. oh well.
