Knitting Progress

Yesterday and today, most of my breaks were used to work on my Girl’s Interweaving Knitted Cardigan. I usually work on both fronts or both sleeves at the same time, but as this piece started out as an exploration of a new (to me) technique, I began with one piece, which I soon saw would make a cute cardi. Today, I thought the red piece was probably up to the armholes, but had not decided what style I wanted. Also, I need to check directions so I have at least a vague idea of what I am doing next. But research takes time . . . So I did what I usually do: I started the second side!

The first side’s weaving is a bit loose in places (which I can tighten up later with a crochet hook), but the second piece looks just right! Here are some photos: two fronts in progress:

I’m not sure how far these two balls will go, so the back and sleeves may be different colours again . . . I do love the accidents of designing as I go . . . but I know I drive some (more organized) people crazy . . . still, they shall remain nameless, to protect the author of this piece!

In my mind, I’ve also been designing a couple of quilted cushion covers. But no sewing until I get my stuff in the back bedroom sorted so we can get in there again! Good thing I take breaks, isn’t it?
