head down

Why hello there. It’s been awhile, hasn’t it? I’ve been busy teaching, rehearsing, writing patterns, and generally trying to keep my head above water!

Part of that is going back to older projects that are filling up my needles and trying to get them done (or ripped). I started this cardigan back in the winter sometime, it’s a really nice light tweed that I got at Rhinebeck in 2008.

trying to get things off the needles

The body and a sleeve to the underarm were done, and I just needed to finish up the second sleeve before joining everything. I’m doing this one as a seamless set-in sleeve, knit at the same time, in the manner of a raglan or circular yoke. I really love this style because there’s no picking up stitches around the armhole later on!

I managed to finish up the yoke and wove in some ends tonight, then I’ll have just the bands left to go – I think I might have to go button shopping yet again.

    Nice construction! Is that one of your patterns?

    Where did you learn how to do set-in sleeves in the round? I’m a huge fan of that style, but can’t stand sewing, so that’s something I’d love to learn!

    I love this! I’m really into simple lines and color right now… I would wear this in a heartbeat.

    Very nice. It’s really inspiring seeing so many people going forth and completing (or at least working on) older projects. I think it helps get the rest of us to do that.
