WIP (or Work in Progress) Wednesday is another scheduled feature post I’m going to try out. I have a lot of WIPs, so I can definitely spread them out over a few weeks, and eventually, one-by-one, they should make it to Made it Monday.
Immediately after I finished the socks, I made a swatch of fabric from this yarn (Sublime Cashmere Merino Silk DK) . I couldn’t use it for the first couple of projects I thought of using it for (wrong weight, or not enough yarn based on my swatch gauge), but I did find this free pattern on Knitty.com for a short sleeve cardigan call Tappan Zee cardigan. I really like the lace pattern on the cardigan. As you can see, I’ve already bound off the sleeves (which feel a little tight so far, but I’ve been gingerly trying the cardigan on so I don’t slide the yarn off the circulars), so I’m now working on 11″ of stockinette stitch… yikes! I have three balls of yarn left, so I think that should be JUST enough to finish the cardigan.
11″ of stockinette stitch is good for sitting-in-front-of-the-TV-knitting.Share on Facebook
