I’ve finally been making great progress on my Cardigan. It’s actually starting to come together and look like something wearable now! I’ve been working on it at home while watching TV (sadly, not the Olympics) with Jamie, and been actually knitting more than getting distracted at knit nights lately too.
The cables are easy & fun, and the sweater is taking great shape. The pattern itself is extremely easy to read, I was a tad nervous starting it, I don’t know why. So far, it’s coming along great. If you’re looking for an easy top-down seamless cardigan, this is the one to go with. I will be altering the pattern though, and making it a lot longer in length than what the actual pattern calls for. I find it too short on the model in the pattern, and I wear my cardigans/sweaters longer than this. But other than that, it’s the only alteration I’m making.
I love the little cables that run down the front and the sleeves. Button band is added on after by picking up stitches along the front from top to bottom on both sides to close the cardigan. I can't wait for it to be done, though don't want the cooler weather to wear it yet.
What do you have on your needles? Are you finding your summer knitting slower than your fall/winter/spring knitting?
