The Vanilla and Liquorice cardigan is now finished, and is lying in my mom’s closet. It was already done a couple of weeks ago, but I was too lazy to click pictures of it. I eventually ended up presenting the cardigan to my mom on her birthday. (My sister thought that was very calculating of me, but I assure you, there was nothing calculating about it. 😉 )
I mentioned in my previous post that the neck was really not in a great shape for the ribbing. To maintain the shape of the neck, I had to eventually make some increases at two places on each side of the body while knitting the ribbing. I still don’t really like how it turned out, but my mom thinks it’s salvaged well enough — she really didn’t like me undoing the yoke. So for now, it’s fine since she’s fine! 🙂 For future projects, I think I’ll need to adjust the yoke cast-on stitches to not contain more than 1 stitch for the neck — that should prevent this quandary.
As for more projects, I’m knitting shawls these days, because sometimes sweaters are just too warm, and shawls certainly finish faster than sweaters. 🙂
