Yes, I have cast on yet another project. How could I resist when it addresses one of my current problems: what can I knit with a million skeins of laceweight yarn when I cant figure out what to do with shawls when I have finished them?? I do love knitting with the smaller needles and tiny yarn, so imagine my joy when I saw the pattern for the Whisper Cardigan in the latest issue of Interweave Knits. The only thing that held me back was wondering what it is going to look like on my lumpy torso, but then I thought, what the heck, who cares. And maybe the floaty back part will hide some of the back flab.
So I am using KnitPicks Shadow in Oregon Coast Heather, which is divine to knit with, so soft, and has some lovely colours in it, fawn (no not beige!) with hints of pink. The construction is basically a shrug with a dangly back part, which sounds awful, but I am hoping it turns out nicely. I have already done the basic shrug part and am onto the ribbed edging.
One slight snag is that I only have 2 skeins of the yarn and I will probably need a third. And you cant get it in the UK. Oh. But a lovely raveller is supposed to be sending me some. At least I hope she is lovely. She has my money, so hopefully all will go smoothly. Meanwhile, I knit on in hope and faith!
