FO: "BORGHILD" Viking Knits Cardigan Set!
Hi!

FINALLY DONE! I finally finished the August Knitting Challenge: Cables. Why so long to finish?? I was so bored with all the st st in this pattern that every time I finished a piece or two...I took "knitting side trips". You know...other projects! About a dozen!

Anyhoo, here she is, along with a cami-tank to match. I had extra yarn, and needed a top to wear with BORGHILD. Designed the cami-tank myself, using Elsebeth Lavold's cable design (as seen in the cardigan) for the chestband. I seamed the band, then picked up stitches along its edge, and knit in-the-round down to the bottom, with some shaping along the way, finishing off with little K1 P1 ribbing to pull it in. Sounds easy, eh? Not so. I knit and re-knit everything about this little cami-tank...however, it wasn't boring! Just tedious! So much for design work. Emphasis on the word "WORK"!

Both are stunning. I checked out her book from the library, drooled over all the pictures, then returned it as way beyond my abilities to date.

I WISH any of the my kids would take an interest in knitting! I have 2 sons, and 3 daughters...none of 'em knit, sew, crochet or quilt. Sigh.

Oh well, there are the 10 grands! Two of the granddaughters have shown an interest. I taught both of them. So far, the 21 yr old is too busy with college and 2 jobs...and the other grand is only 8...and too busy with elementary school homework.

Maybe this summer....
