I'm cranking away at three patterns at the moment. I don't know why I do this, because I used to have total tunnel vision! I wouldn't cast on for a sweater til the other one was done! Or at least, blocking!
I'm seaming up YANK
tonight. All the pieces are finally blocked
and totally dry. The coat fits like 'double breasted'
! I love it!
I cast on for the Tweedy Aran Cardigan
(by Norah Gaughan).
Also hosting a KAL
for it over at Rav. Official Cast On Day: April 1st.
Most of the knitters are getting their yarn in the month of March, swatching,
and finishing up loose ends for other projects.
I just finished swatching (one for st st gauge, and one for pattern stitch called 'double garter stitch')
for the Kerrera Cardigan.
FINALLY figured out how to work 'double garter stitch!
(used as the hem, cuffs, pocket trim and all bands!)
May cast on for it tonight after YANK is seamed.
Frogged the Alaska Cardigan
and re-used the red tweed immediately (for YANK). It was ginormous on me. Nothing about the fit was acceptable. The red tweed was too precious to waste. I won't re-knit the Alaska. I found a better design that isn't raglan sleeves (which don't have the support; they are more easily pulled south by the weight of the coat). The Faery Ring Cardigan
hoodie is a much better design! Ordered Black Water Abbey wool for it.
Frogged 80% of the Kimono Cardigan
cuz I ran out of yarn.
Will re-knit it for sure, and shorten the sleeves by 4" and that should get me the extra yardage needed to finish the Right Front. Oy. It's knit all in one piece, so I had to yank out the two fronts and the sleeves. The yarn is discontinued. But, even if I could get the yarn, the sleeves were too long. It's the design. It pulls on shoulders and 'no seams' allowed the sleeves to grow!
So that's what I'm doing. Three WIPS, one in hibernation, and one is a total BUST.
Next project: a KAL for the Blackberry Cabled Cardigan!
And the Waterlily Sideways Cardigan
by K. Zimmerman!
