Amherst Cardigan

I've finished knitting the Amherst Cardigan! Emphasis on the word 'knitting', since the actual finishing - the blocking - still remains to be done. I'll get to that after about six months, since that's probably when I'll finally use the sweater. The ends are woven in, thankfully, since I weave in ends as I go, … Continue reading Amherst Cardigan

WIP: Amherst Cardigan

I finished the sleeves of my Amherst cardigan, and they fit just the way I like them! The Brioche stitching of the cuffs never seemed to end, but it finally did, icord-style. Brioche stitch looks wonderful with two colors - I like it more than the single color version - but I don't think its  … Continue reading WIP: Amherst Cardigan

Two steps forward…

... Two steps back, and almost a step forward. That's the state of the Amherst Cardigan right now. I almost completed the sleeves, when I realized I didn't really like their form and fit much. Well, it's better to knit it right instead of letting it slide and being unhappy when I wear it, so … Continue reading Two steps forward…

The fringe is still wonky, and I'm hoping to find methods to straighten it. If all else fails, I'll just … Continue reading Wall Hanging: L&T SAL 2018

WIP – Amherst Cardigan

(The title was a giveaway but...) It's decided - the Amherst Pullover is going to be a cardigan in my hands. I've made the pattern modifications from pullover to cardigan, and have calculated the amount of yarn required with my gauge. And guess what, it looks like the yarn I have barely covers it. Not … Continue reading WIP – Amherst Cardigan

Linen and Threads SAL 2018

Hurrah! I did manage to finish the December section of the Mystery SAL from Linen and Threads. And that means the year-long project is now complete! I'd altered the section to shorten the dress of the human in this section, and I like that it turned out not too bad. I did make a mistake … Continue reading Linen and Threads SAL 2018
