All is quiet here chez Wendyknits.
I have completed the body of my Sportweight Aran Cardigan.
As you can see from the photo, I have joined the front and back at the shoulders and have knit the neckband. This morning I sewed the buttons on the buttonband. I have also picked up stitches along one side to use to attach a sleeve (using a three-needle bind-off).
Here’s a close-up of the neck:
I bought myself a Christmas gift that just arrived:
This is a complete set of 7″ long Signature Needle Arts straight needles (with stiletto tips). (The needle roll is one I already had.) I had a few sets of these, but used a year-end bonus from work to complete my set. I have a very old set of 7″ Aero straight needles that I have found extremely useful over the years, but they are not in great shape, and also only in 6 sizes. Now I have pretty much all sizes covered.
