There wasn't much time to knit during the weekend. The few moments I had, I kept knitting Nocturne since she seems to be the easiest to pick up when there is just a moment here and there. That is the best thing about stockinette, you never need to figure out what you have been doing... Even though I have picked her up many times I still haven't finished the body. I hope I can accomplish that soon and then the sleeves should go quicker. And I'm drawn to smaller projects now. I have been eyeing EZ's mitered mittens in her book "Knitter's Almanac" and my merino yarn stash for making another baby jacket.
Tulips baby cardigan is a kit, I did not pick up the colours myself. I have not seen this colourway in online sources. This kit was a gift to me from a dear friend so I don't know the source. The yarn is lovely to handle, it is worsted superwash merino called "Classy" and I have been knitting the main part with size 4 mm needles.
I have made a couple of changes to the pattern. They are not big and are not making the pattern any better, this is just a matter of taste. Instead of making an i-cord to the edges I knit stockinette for three rows and then cast off. And I made my increases in a way that I have found in EZ's book. I don't remember which one of the books but when increasing, I did not knit into the front and back of the stitch but made the increase with yarnover that I twisted to avoid a hole.
I hope I can fit lots of knitting time for the coming week. I should be able to since the work outside is done for this fall. One of the weather forecast maps has predicted snow for Wednesday which is always good for the knitting.
I have been blogging for a little more than two years now, thank you all for reading!
