The Sweater Continues


I have been working on this super scrumptious sweater off and on for weeks.  Every time I pick it up and work a few rows, I wonder why I have not worked on it more.  I will blame it on the miles and miles of mind-numbingly (spell check does NOT like that word and I'm too lazy to google) boring stockinette stitch.  However, all that stockinette lets me talk, watch tv and best of all--not count stitches and look for mistakes.  I just pick up and go!

It's perfect for summer time knitting around my house these days.  Soon enough I will have time to focus on charts and counting and intricate patterns to knit up.  Casting on this sweater with slippery silk yarn was not fun.  But now that I have some fabric to grasp--oh my I love to knit with silk!  I might have to save my pennies and indulge in another skein of this Claudia's hand painted silk, the yardage is quite generous (1100 yds) And really can there be too many featherweight cardigans?  Nope.


Did you know that I am having a giveaway--it's over here! Leave a comment and you have a chance to win.  Also in the next week or two I will have another pattern available to download.  I am keeping it a secret for now so you'll have to just keep visiting to find out what it is.

  3. I love that color! You seriously have some great yarns! (:

    I've learned to knit simple lace while watching B play video games. It's a step I never thought I'd be able to take. I've always been a stockinette girl at heart. (:

  7. Beautiful! I have a skein of tosh lace in the tart colorway that I thought was meant to be a shawl ... but I'm really leaning towards a featherweight now ...

  11. your stockinette looks so smooth....
    very pretty.
    I would join the giveaway but I just feel like there are better knitters out there who really need stitch markers.
    The projects are do are pretty easy and just don't require them.

  13. I'm on lots and lots of stocking stitch at the moment - although nowhere near as delicate as featherweight!!!
    But: still perfect for watching films, car rides, chats... I love the colours in your cardi, and I can only imagine what it must feel like!
