I have globs of projects that are boring st. st., which is great, but a little tedious. It's perfect for cut scenes/load screens while playing my video games. (ya, I still miss those long elevator rides from the first Mass Effect. I was able to get a lot of knitting done riding around in elevators). However, complex isn't cutting it either. So what's a knitter to do?
Go back to the comfort zone:
|Cotton Ease, Cables and Cardigan!|
The pattern is from an old Paton's booklet called "Canadian Living" and calls for the long discontinued Paton's Ballybrae. The Cotton Ease at this gauge is very firm, and I'm guessing this cardigan is going to be fairly warm for a summer cardigan. However, I'm loving the fabric and the way the cables are looking.
I will say that I'm not a fan of knitting with white yarn. There's NO room for sloppy stitches. For some reason any loose gauge areas can really stand out (especially that tricky "post cable purl" stitch). I'm fairly pleased with this one, and it's progressing smoothly (so far.... eeks, that's it. I'll be frogging something before the end of the day, eh?). The left front is at the neck line shaping, so time to dust off the actual directions and maybe even read them!
