Since finishing my cardigan last week I was excited to get some new projects started. As usual I have a mindless one and a complicated one. The purple is a lace shawl using the colour changing yarn my husband bought me when we moved house. The pattern is Sea Leaves which is free on ravelry.
The garish multicoloured project is a cardigan for my 8 year old. The poor thing apparently has no knitted cardigans that fit her any more and is going to get ever so cold over the Winter. After much pleading and guilt-tripping she persuaded me to make her something and we decided on a Neverland Hoody in the Wendy version. It's a simple raglan cardigan with a nice waist detail. I'm just at the point of separating the sleeves and soon I'll be ready to do the empire band. My daughter has requested a pixie hood but aside from that I'm pretty much following the pattern as written. I'm having to make the 6 years size for my 8 year old because she's teeny but I'll probably add some extra length :-)
I'm using the same striping technique I used for the Celebrations jumper I made my son back in February. Basically alternating three different balls of yarn and swapping at the end of each row. Should make a very unique cardigan!
Have a good week everyone :-)
