It was mentioned in my comments on Friday that for a girl who claims she doesn’t like cardigans, I sure have been knitting a bunch of them.
Yes, I have, haven’t I?
I still do prefer pullovers to cardis. But there have been a heckuva lot of cute cardi patterns that I’ve wanted to make!
But for Dale 10903, I’m going to knit a pullover — it’s one of the pattern options. (By the way, Vera, the gauge is 28 stitches and 36 rows to 10 cm on size 3mm needles.)
Which brings me to a question . . .
What Will Wendy Knit Next?
I’ve got lots of projects waiting in the wings! Some have been waiting longer than others. Like Marina (from AS Scottish Collection), which has been patiently waiting since last summer when I bought the Jamieson & Smith shetland for it.
Then there’s the Poetry in Stitches leaf sweater that I bought the kit for when I got my promotion in May.
And Dale 10903 I just mentioned.
And . . . ahem . . . another Dale design I haven’t mentioned yet, because I . . . uh . . . just ordered the Daletta (from the ever-wonderful Bea Ellis) for it.
Oh, did you notice that it’s a cardigan?
Also, I wanna knit an aran out of the blue Cascade 220 I bought last spring.
What’s a girl to do?
Big Sock News!
The German version is linked to from the pattern on my website, too.
I finished the body.
And I started a sleeve.
I did machine stitch all the steeks on the body, in preparation for doing the front bands, the neckband, and setting in the sleeves. This was the first time Lucy’s seen me use my sewing machine and she got very excited. So much so that she had to take a rest afterward.
Hi Mom and Dad!
My parents left last week on a trip to Scandinavia, to visit my dad’s relatives. Here they are arriving at the airport in Vasa, Finland last Friday.
Have a good Monday, everyone.
