A Cardigan Takes Flight

Bentley cardigan 
Or at least it begins to take shape.  I've separated the sleeve stitches onto holders so I'm just knitting on the body now.  I will need to go back later and add front and neck bands to the cardigan.  They aren't knit on as you go like the Beccs cardigan.  Maybe I'm weird, but I don't mind doing the front and neck bands separately.  I know a lot of knitters hate them, and when you're trying to get a sweater knitted quickly for some sort of time challenge, having them knit in as you go does save some time; but I've never minded working them separately.

I added a second ball of yarn when I separated the sleeve stitches, so now I'm alternating skeins.  Even though this is a pale color, it's still a hand dyed yarn and I don't want to be surprised by differences in the skeins.  I've figured out the hard way that it's better to just blend them together.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!  I'll be knitting and watching The Defenders on Netflix!

Nice sweater. Looking forward to seeing it completed and especially the button band. I attended Stitches Universe last April and took a class with Anna Zolberg (sp?) on the perfect button band. Pretty cool!
