Featherweight Continues

Remember this old thing?  Yep, it is my featherweight cardigan and I just finished the ribbing yesterday.  This project is very slow going with size four needles and lace weight yarn.  I also am making the smaller size than my first featherweight sweater.  I love the blue sweater but when I soaked and blocked it the size changed dramatically towards large.  It is still too large in the armhole shaping and the chest size.

So as I was photoing this sweater I am wondering will blocking make it bigger?  I can only hope.  At least it is not huge on me.  In the end I chose a simple 2 x 2 ribbing for the edging.


  1. Karen, it is beautiful! I hope one day to knit something as lovely as you do...wow!
    PS- book is wrap and will drop in the post when I am in town tomorrow. Have a great day.xx
    PSS- Yes, the squirrels must eat and I don't mind sharing [they ate half my pears], but last year they took all of the pecans! This year seems to be a bumper crop so there are plenty to go around. ;)

  2. That's some nice progress, with such light yarn & such tiny needles! I really love that colour! xo

  3. Beautiful colour. I am in awe of anyone who can make that much progress on anything in such fine yarn - I'm going crazy making a DK weight cardigan!

  4. We all wait with our fingers crossed for you!

    Blessings, Debbie
