WIP: Amherst Cardigan

Progress has been slow on the Amherst Cardigan…

As planned, I’m on the sleeves of the cardigan now, knitting both together. I’m happy I work two at a time now – makes it much difficult to make mistakes on only one of the sleeves, which I’m sure I’ve made on an old project because one of the sleeves seems different to me than the other. Either that or one of my arms is fatter or longer than the other.

Anyway, I’ve reached the halfway mark, and I’m hoping I’ll finish the rest of it faster now, since there are more decreases in the sweater down the elbow. Phew, I already can’t wait to get back onto the body and complete it. It’s getting hotter here already so I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to wear the sweater immediately, but at least it’ll be there when I need it.

Amherst Cardigan - progress on sleeves

As for other projects –

The Linen and Threads SAL wall hanging now has its fringes blocked to straighten them, and it went really well. The piece now looks gorgeous in the living room. (It looks pretty much the same as it did in my previous post, so I won’t bore you with a picture again. 😛 )

Speaking of SALs, I had a look at the February section of the current Linen and Threads SAL, and I’m still not sure if I want to take it up. At this rate, I’ve anyway no hope of catching up quickly, and will probably work on it at my own pace, so I’m now wondering if I want to stitch the 2017 instead. Either way, I still have to buy thread. Since I’ll be toning down drastically on the color count – just 2, or 3 at the most – and already have a couple of colors in mind, I just have to wade through the horrible traffic of Bangalore (shudder!) and buy them.

That’s it from me. Looking forward to hearing what you’ve been up to!
