That is the question
Larch my cardigan hurdle has langished for months after knitting the body quite quickly – and then after a flurry of activity last month on sleeve attempts I am stumped.
3 times I have picked up stitches and started the top down sleeve which I so loved on the Audrey in Unst. And 3 times I have failed to make it work. I just took these photos and perhaps you can see how big and gapy the sleeve is. I think the armhole is too deep and not working for me this way around. I am so frustrated I feel like frogging the entire cardigan and starting on something else entirely.
Looking at the photos perhaps it is working or is it? oh, I think its going to go for another nap in the too hard basket
Another finished item off the list today – some socks but they are still drying – here is the hat I mentioned yesterday which got another outing to the markets this morning
Pattern: Zumthor Hat
Yarn: Jo Sharp Silkroad Dk Tweed
Needles: ? cant remember but as per pattern
Time on needles : 2 days
After a frustrating few knits with their slowness this knit ticked the boxes. I cast on last Saturday night and cast off on Sunday. A really cool construction and great effect with the decreases. I think if I made another I’d make the next size down, I made the largest, and not as tall – as S.V.’s head suits a shallower design see how he prefers the edge folded?
I would definitely recommend this knit for your winter warmers….
