WIP Wednesday

Hi guys!

Guess I went a bit quiet after the post-fest that was Knitting and Crochet Blog Week! To be honest the past few weeks have been hard work for my family and I, including a seriously ill family member who we are all concerned about. We're all tired out and desperate for a quiet weekend with some sunshine so we can just chill out and warm up.

Understandably not much crafting has gone on! I did mange to finish the first sleeve of my cardigan yesterday though. Realised near the end that I'd made a bit of a boo-boo with my gauge so ended up ripping it back and re-doing it with the decreases wider spaced

I've done 3/4 length sleeves as described in the pattern. I am tempted to make another one of these with long length sleeves though. Obviously I've got a few ends to weave in and it's unblocked but you can start to get an idea of the shape of this cardigan, it looks nicer when worn :-)

I decided to do this pretty cuff detail rather than do a simple garter stitch cuff. It's quite subtle (partly due to my gauge issues again) but I think with a little blocking it will look fine. Hopefully I'll be able to get the cardigan finished, blocked and ready for photographing over the Bank Holiday weekend. Then I guess I'll have to decide what to make next...

    1. It's been quite a quick knit actually. I started it in March but I've had a few weeks where I've barely done any work on it. It's always nice to get to the end of a project though :)

  6. The shape of this cardi is so interesting! I love 3/4 length sleeves as I find it irksome to have roll them up when I'm doing something that will possibly dirty them.

    1. It hangs really nicely when worn. I wasn't sure about the sleeves at first but then I started paying attention to how often I end up rolling my long sleeved cardigans up so thought I'd give them a go :)
