The construction requires a little bit of concentration, you do a provisional cast on (I used Judy's Magic cast on with a spare circular needle) and then knit down the back. Then you cut the yarn and using the provisional cast on you knit down the front sides and then eventually they'll all join up to make the cardigan shape. It's not a hard pattern particularly and like Elena's other patterns it's well explained with lots of detail, it's just one that you need to keep track of what you're doing rather than zoning out. Because then you cross the cables the wrong way and have to drop the stitches and rework them with a crochet hook ;-)
Much as I'm enjoying knitting something other than socks, I'm enjoying having projects that are a bit more mindless. I've added a few more squares to my sock yarn blanket although I'm trying not to do too much more until I've generated some more yarn scraps. I'm trying to resist buying mini skeins because I think that could be a dangerous black hole for me to fall into lol.
Today I've decided I'm going to concentrate on finishing off this pair of socks. I've got about 8 rows of the pattern and then the ribbing so it shouldn't take me too long. Depends how much time I spend procrastinating...
Firstly though I need to take this young pup for a walk. He'll be 6 months old on Saturday and is growing into such a handsome chap. At the moment we're trying to work on his barking, he sounds terrifying if he's on the lead and there's a dog coming towards him but if they're off lead playing around he is a silly, soppy boy who falls on his back at every opportunity. His breed is used as livestock guardians so they've been bred to alert if there is a possible threat. He just needs to learn what a threat really is
Apparently wood pigeons are ever so dangerous ;-)
Have a good week everyone!
