After a successful stripey top, it’s time for a new project! The project on my needles right now is a cardigan for my sis that I started this week.
Earlier, I mentioned a delicious orange yarn that we thought of working with, but I couldn’t really come up with something that would do justice to the yarn, so we put it aside. And, ahem, we bought some new yarn for her cardigan. 😀 This is Nako Pirlanta, the same yarn that I used for a shawl for my sis, so I guess she likes this one!
The color this time is Almond, though it doesn’t remind me of any almond I’ve seen. 😛 It’s still a gorgeous color, though. I’ve abandoned the vertical stripes plan for this project, and have gone with a lot of dense textures instead. The cardigan is raglan style, with simple eyelet-infused cables running along the raglan. The sleeves are seed stitch, and the body comprises of seed stitches and slipped-stitch ribs. I think I’ll have a better picture to put up when I make actual progress on it. 🙂
This is supposed to be a winter project, and I’m knitting it combination style to see if I notice an increase in my speed. Even so, I’m not sure how fast I can knit it so it’s ready to wear this winter — even late winter. I’ll just do my best!
