Knitting News

 

Hello! Another Wednesday and another update on my knitting. First off, is the above featherweight cardigan that my sister started for herself and then just could not knit on. I'm not sure when she started this cardigan but I am guessing years ago. She finished the body and did one meager inch of ribbing. For her Christmas gift she asked me to finish it for her. Super easy to do!!

I had to drop down a needle size to match her gauge and I finished the body ribbing. I'm about half way down with the first sleeve. The yarn is mystery yarn, she thinks it's Mad Tosh Lace - I will know when I block it if it grows significantly. I've knit with that wool  many many times.

My other project is the baby blanket for my nephew's baby to be that is due in mid-January. How delightful to be knitting on size EIGHT needles, super speedy!!

What are you working on this week?

  3. That is very kind of you to finish the sweater for your sister. My daughter and I talked about sharing sweater knitting. I would do the body and she would do the sleeves. I am working on my Pheasant and a baby sweater for the grandson

  8. How nice of you to finish your sister's sweater. I'm sure she will love that gift and remember it for a long time to come. I'm working on a shawl for my daughter, a baby sweater for no one in particular, and a poncho. I'm fantasy knitting a sweater in my head.

  10. That color blue is just perfect. It's not so babyish that a growing boy wouldn't want to keep using it.

  13. Oooh, I wish you were MY sister! I have a poncho that I started last fall and am still trying to complete. It is a great pattern because it is introducing me to a lot of new stitching techniques and it is an awful patter because it is introducing me to a lot of new stitching techniques! : )
