Meanwhile . . .

I finished the body of my Yell Cardigan!

I decided to knit the front bands before doing the sleeves.

I knit a facing for the bands, the same way I did the bottom edge. I l;ike the way it looks on the inside:

And Loki is as helpful as usual!


  1. Wow to both! May have to boost my knitting.

  2. I’m subscribed to Boost your knitting. Love it.
    Your sweater is so gorgeous. A lot of work, no wonder Loki is tired.

  3. Gorgeous cardi but tell me, where do you wear all these lovely creations? It never seems to be cold enough!

  4. Both designs are beautiful but that cardigan is amazing!

    This cardigan is soo pretty. Loki is taking a much needed catnap. He’s adorable. ❤️🐾
