Hitofude Cardigan



Well, I cast on a sweater, sort of a shrug, that is all the rage on ravelry.  I love when peer pressure is all for creativity and goodness, I saw Steph's lacy beginnings and knew I was going to start one.  Steph over at woolythyme and I are having a loosey goosey knit along and I'm going to post my progress of my sweater each Tuesday.  Care to join us?  You can report your progress at her blog or my blog or both in the comments section.  We have no rules that I know of and I think this will be fun :)

I dug deep in my yarn stash and remembered this lovely yarn I bought while up in Portland Maine a few years ago.  I bought the discontinued yarn not knowing what its future held.  Well the future is today and the yarn will become a Hitofude!

  1. OK. I'm jealous. That color is over the top gorgeous (and one I actually knit with for myself...ha! you thought I only knit with grey!?! yeah, my hitofude IS grey.) Oh, this is going to be fun. We already have a cheerleader and someone knitting some other lacey cardi joining us, and several more casting on the hitofude. I don't know about you, but I may be on the 7-year plan for the completion of this one.....???? Oh, wait. That's what the knitalong is going to try to remedy, right?

  14. I put it in my queue as soon as Steph mentioned it a few weeks back. After reading her post yesterday I'm also joining your loosey-goosey KAL. I have to buy yarn since the yarn in my stash that I immediately thought of won't be enough. But then that won't be a problem either!
