Life has been busy here. With my travels coming up soon, I've been working, seeing our parents, trying to finish a project for a show. And, most importantly, trying to set up travel knitting projects! Even summer vacation is busy.
I have finished the cardigan for my daughter, Rachel, with just over a week until I fly to Florida. I'll give her the sweater then -- and hope that it fits!
It's the Windchill Cardigan by Melissa LaBarre. The pattern is easy and well-written. I used Valley Superwash DK, which was lovely to work with and is a good value for the price. I really like the waffle-weave edging.
With that done, I have tracked down my Vodka Lemonade sweater, which I'm knitting in Cascade Sport-Weight.
I was able to slip it on today, and I think it's going to fit. I have broad shoulders, so I added some length to the raglan shaping. It's a very sweet little pattern, but I'm not sure it was smart to make it in wool. It's more of a summer sweater.
Maybe I'll make a second? I don't know. That seed-stitch collar took forever!
