A few of you have asked what my daughter is knitting. So I snapped some photos to show everyone. The cowl she just finished this weekend she started last October. It was hibernating for quite some time in her dorm room then her room. I think it was half way done. This is the pattern and she used some of my left over Malabrigo Worsted doubled up.
She just started the hat (above) three days ago. The yarn is Galway and here is the pattern. This is her first time using circulars and also doing K2tog and SSK. So far, so good. Once she gets to the crown of the hat she will have to use double pointed needles. She is planning on taking some (I hope a lot) of my unwanted yarn stash and knit stuff.
I have about three inches done on the body of the featherweight cardigan. I am just chugging along on my sweater. I am very pleased with being on size four needles (I think the pattern calls for six!). It has a nice crisp look. I still have no idea what the buttonband design will be. Not that I am anywhere close to doing it.
