Knitting


This week, largely due to a long car journey, I have finished the cable section of my cardigan and am now working on the rib around the neckband.  I then have two button bands to knit, the underarm seems to close and a load of ends to weave in.  I am planning lots more projects in my head whilst I knit these last few rows.  I have loved this pattern and hope that the cardigan is a good fit when complete, it will get lots of wear if it does in our cold autumns and winters.  I may knit one up for my youngest too as the pattern is from baby to adult.

Despite reading lots two weeks ago this week I have barely read a chapter.  We have been busy elsewhere, outside enjoying the continuing sunshine we so rarely get in the summer.  I am falling into bed tired out rather than reading a chapter or two before sleep.

Joining in with Tami for this weeks work in progress and Ginny for Yarn Along a sharing of knitting and reading.

  1. Spending every day outside enjoying the weather sounds like the very best thing to do! Can't wait to see you model your cardi! Friday?

  2. Ooooh! That looks like the makings of a beautiful cardi! Wish I could knit at more than a snail's pace atm - I just go from one distraction to another!
