Since Dylan started summer vacation, I’ve become quite lax with time constraints and such. Personal projects lose focus when more immediate matters take up your attention. I’ve only really got chunks of time for a bit of knitting and whatever else catches my fancy.
The striped cardigan is slowly coming along. I’m only going to use the variegated yarn then bind off on a purl row. Except for the end, it will be in blocks of six, instead of the four, (except for the last block which goes k, p, k, then bind off), so it’s cable row, p, k, p, k, p. Also, never get overly ambitious when you think you’ve mastered something, when clearly I have not, and try to make shapes with cables. I’m not undoing it but letting the cables be wonky.

I’ve decided to use up Yarn Collective’s BloomsburyDK in soot to make a front and back yoke, although I’m unsure what the main body will look like.
The back piece is done and has four rows of eight open mesh then a border and one long edge has a row of shell stitches. The front will be a various amount of open mesh and will narrow down to one, but the main body will still be rectangle like the back piece.
