My next project for Sweaters 2013 is another cardigan!  (Actually, I think they're all cardigans, but I can't remember.)  I'll be using some handspun yarn that I spun ages ago.  It's been sitting in the stash, just waiting for me to find the perfect project for it and I think I've found it.  The pattern is Bluebelle and I think it will be perfect for this yarn.  I haven't found a button for it yet, but I won't need it until the end.  This is another bottom up cardigan, but the sleeves are picked up and knit down from the armscyes so I won't be doing the sleeves first.  There's no seaming up at the end, so finishing shouldn't take long.  I've already knit a swatch, and it's the right gauge for the pattern, but I have no idea what needles I used.  I'm hoping I blogged the swatch and the needles, otherwise I'll be knitting another swatch before I start this project!

I'm off to go dig around in the depths of the blog to try and find the swatch information.  (If I was nice and organized, I would have pinned a note to the swatch with needle size information, but no, that didn't happen.)  OK, that was easier than I thought - I used US 4's.  Now I don't have to re-swatch.  Onward!

Beautiful color! I'll be eagerly anticipating the finished sweater - I'm sure it will be gorgeous!

I tie knots in the yarn of my swatch to indicate the needle size. 3 knots is a size 3 needle. I find that very helpful.

When do we get to see the sewing machine all together with a before and after comparison?
