I am slowly making progress on my Woodfords Cardigan. I apologize for the quality of the photos that follow — the piece is not as yellow in real life, but the photos were taken at night in artificial light. Here is Woodfords spread out as much as I can with the bottom stitches mooshed up on the needle:
I have just finished working the braided “welt” on the lower back:
Here it is with the braid completed:
Next I need to work the lower body. This will be 12 inches of relatively mindless knitting. After that, all that remains are the sleeves. but the lower body is an impressively large number of stitches, so that will take a goodly chunk of time to complete.
I flipped the piece over — here it is with one side front smoothed out:
I think this will be a very wearable cardigan. While it is wool, it’s not too warm because it is fingering weight knit at a loose gauge. The knitting has been/is time-consuming, but so far has been very entertaining.
While I was taking those photos, Loki was supervising from atop the jewelry armoire:
Note that the armoire is turned around so the front of it is facing the wall. That is because a certain furry little somebody was reaching down, prying open a drawer with a chubby little paw, and removing pieces of jewelry.
It’s never a dull moment around here.
