So close…


I’m more than halfway through the final panel of my cardigan.  If all my plans go well, I should finish it up tonight, seam the shoulders and then get to blocking the pieces.   I think this panel will be much improved by blocking.  Without the stockinette panels to hold it out, the lace kind of sucks together and the edges roll, and the cables are really puffy too.  Hopefully it will block to size (right now it is tiny!)

Two of the LYS here are having 20% sales this week.  Yesterday I went to do my part of the local economy and bought some silky wool (I’ve been wanting this color for ages!) and Cotton Fleece in Pinecone.


I might try the Knitting Pure and Simple shaped cardigan that I’ve got in the silky wool, and I’m wanting to swatch for the Fitted Knits puff sleeve cardigan in the Cotton Fleece.
