The empire waist cardigan is finished – my poor wrists!
I can’t tell yet whether I like it, as this is a sweater that really needs a good blocking. I’m hoping that it stretches out a bit, as before blocking I thought the shoulders could be wider (which is funny, since that’s why I ripped back the first time!) Usually things that are knit sideways stretch quite a bit that direction, so hopefully it will work out! It’s gloomy and rainy today, but once things get more sunny I will get an FO shoot on this one!
To combat all that stockinette, I cast on for Peaches, my crocheted hat.
I do wonder about the idea of cotton hats for summer. Perhaps in England, where I imagine they don’t have the awful summers we do here, this is a practical item. Personally, I plan to wear it in the fall, before it gets too cold, but that works for me! The pattern is fun, and it shouldn’t take too long to finish.
I caught Sarah Jane relaxing in her favorite chair this morning… I love how she is camouflaged here!
“Don’t you dare try to steal my chair.”
“Ok fine, but I get to work the mouse!”
