Summer Cardi - Third Time is the Charm
This weekend I had a class on the beginning of the Open Summer Cardi by Knitting Pure and Simple. After reviewing gauge, knitting techniques, the pattern and choosing a goal to reach before the second part of the class, we cast on and began the fastest part of the sweater which is the first dozen rows or so of the increase section.
I am knitting my third attempt out of Caron Handpaint Yarn in Ocean so it will be something I can wear to work or play.
When I put the sweater down for the evening I was halfway to the hold the sleeves section. I need to have this one to the pick up the neckband by the first of June. I think I can make it, I think I can, I think I can....
