Construction: 1. worked as one peice instead of 3, back and forth, from bottom up.
2. Finished shoulders with kitchener stitch.
3. Worked sleeves from shoulder down, starting with short rows to shape the shoulder. Both sleeves were then worked together. I began knitting the sleeves in the round and discovered that this rib does not do well, so I switched to back and forth and seemed the sleeves.
Yarn: Reynolds Saucy White, 100% Cotton, Worsted weight
Needles: Denise Circular #7
-The sleeves seemed to take forever. I never thought I was going to finish this Cardigan. I like it and it is exactly what I wanted for a quick throw on cool spring/fall evenings. I am thinking, however of putting a single button up on the neck. It would look cute as well as added warmth at the neck.
-I am happy to be finished with this project as well as happy to blog again. One more project I want to finish before I start anything new. Then I have about 3 projects in mind.
-Question: I frogged a sweater and was wondering if I should "wash" the wool before using it again, and how do I go about "washing" wool?
-It has been a wonderful summer! Yet I am glad it is over, it was so very busy, that I feel like I am now on MY vacation. At least for a while....I have lots of "work" to do at home.
