My Fair Cardi is now deemed to be a morning / midday project, since the black color of the yarn is not very work-friendly in the ambient light of evenings. As a result, its progress has slowed down. Looks like my sister has a bit of a wait ahead for her cardigan. Either that or I’ll have to use up a few vacation days. 🙂
My evening project is now a cardigan that I’m making from yarn that I originally bought to make a top. Could yarn shortage be a problem? Nah! I’m using a large gauge, since I’d like the sweater to be airy without incorporating lace or eyelets.
Well, that’s not entirely true. I wanted a column of some pattern for the back of this cardigan. Bamboo eyelet was one of the earliest eyelet patterns I looked up, and I used that here. I modified the position of the eyelets to make them move around a bit. So essentially, though it doesn’t look like bamboo anymore, I’m still calling it bamboo eyelet cardigan.
I’m mostly done knitting the back, and consequently, with the bamboo eyelet pattern too. The front and sleeves are plain stockinette, and since I consider that boring, I hope I finish the pieces soon. 🙂
