Cardigan finished, pullover started
I finished my cardigan. I love it and I’ve gotten a lot of use out of it this winter and spring. I finished it sometime in February.
I had to incentivitze myself to get it done. At New Year’s I purchased a Crafty class called custom cabled pullovers. I ordered the yarn, but told myself that I couldn’t even start watching the class until I finished the Circumnavigated Cardigan. It did spur me on and I’ve started the pullover. Here is one sleeve and the back. I knit the sleeve to the armhole decreases, then put it aside to work the back so that I knew they would match. The design and fit process has been quite challenging for me but I love it! I’m using Universal Classic Worsted and the color is Royal Purple.
I’m very close to starting the top border of the Orenburg shawl, and I’m halfway done with a pair of socks for a friend. The sad part with all this knitting is that ALL my bobbin lace pillows are naked! I have a bookmark pricking on one of my roller pillows and I might wind some bobbins just to get something going. I found an ornament pattern that I’d like to try, so that might be an option to get me going as well.
