Front and Back

Finally finally finally!  I am on the front shaping.  I thought I would never ever get there.  I love knitting on tiny needles (these are size 4) but at some point during a big project, like a cardigan, I think I must have lost my mind to make a sweater with a small gauge.  And yet I want to make another featherweight cardigan, go figure.  Since the front of this cardigan is a deep v-neck, the shaping is going at lightening speed.  Before you know it I will be posting about the sleeves.

I just could not resist a picture of Frodo with his new hair cut (can't tell because of the big old mustache and beard he sports).  In this picture he was being nosy.


  1. I thought Frodo was posing...he really is adorable.
    How long has it taken you on the cardigan with size 4 needles?
    I have thought about doing one with a small needle and just working on it when I travel. It would take me a while, but I wouldn't have to drag different projects each time.

  2. Hi Tracey! I started the cardi on 2-25 but I usually have two to three projects going at one time. I think if it was my sole project I could have it done in 3-4 weeks. I like how smaller gauge sweaters fit and you can wear them during most seasons. Try it!

  3. Precious puppy!

    I'm hoping to start a cardigan sometime soon--something I haven't tried yet! But probably not until after the wedding. :)

  4. I can definitely see why you would want to make another, It's gorgeous! And so are you Frodo...

    Blessings, Debbie

  5. FRODO - you are so stinking cute ;)

    Karen - your sweater is going to be gorgeous!
