Having felt too unwell to knit over Christmas, I finally picked my needles up again on Friday. Whilst I did technically start this project in November, swatching and knitting the back edging, I left it there since:
- I needed to finish Lovely Husband’s Christmas sweater.
- Lovely Husband’s Christmas sweater was on the needles I wanted to use.
I also admit, that although I’d been planning it a while, I couldn’t get much enthusiasm for it. However, I’ve been fully enthused since Friday and this is how far I’ve got…
Sometimes a pattern looks better in a swatch than when you knit a whole garment in it, but I’m pleased to say, I’m liking this pattern even more than I did when it was in the swatch. However the pattern is quite ‘dense’ and I can’t make my mind up whether to knit it entirely in the pattern or make it a half and half affair, with the pattern stopping somewhere just below the armpits then knitting on in stocking stitch. It’s going to be a long cardigan BTW.
What do you think?
