oh, that new project smell!

I think I was feeling really lost about my knitting projects because I was just so bored with doing the same ones for so long! Cast on for something new and it just speeds along – the 5.5 mm needles probably help, too.

Friday morning…

quickie cardigan

Saturday morning…

yoke done...

And this, well, afternoon since I got up so late…

...and a sleeve

It’s just a simple top-down cardigan – it’s going to be short, because I’m light on yarn, but I’ve got an idea for the shape that I’m hoping will work out. We’ll see – I wanted to do the sleeves first so I could use up every last scrap of yarn for the body! I’m now done that second sleeve and I’m moving on the body.

I love the yarn, too – it’s Sublime Cashmere Merino Silk Aran, and while I know it isn’t going to wear very well, it’s awfully soft! Mmmmm.

In other yarn news,

STR "lettuce knit"

Socks that Rock lightweight in our very own “lettuce knit” colourway is in at the store! A pretty decent amount of yarn came, but it’s going fast – if you want one by mail order, give me a call (number’s on the website) and I’ll see what I can do!

    Pretty! I LOVE that yarn. I am working with the DK right now. How many balls are you using? I have some of the aran in my stash

    I love STR. It will be fun to see the various Lettuce Knit socks knit up. Do you have a pair planned?

    Are you knitting another Callie Cardigan? I gave the one I knitted to my Mom for Mother’s Day and she can’t wait for the weather to get cool again so she can wear it some more. I need to knit me one, one of these days!

    Amazing! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a completely different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!
