I decided to participate in another KAL (hugely addictive, thanks to the nice atmosphere and support in the Ravelry forums), it is Very Shannon´s Summer Sweater Knit Along. Today is the first day, so guess what I did first thing in the morning – yes, I cast on a new cardigan. I did choose pattern and swatch and everything before. The swatch colours make me pretty excited 🙂
The pattern I decided to go with is Sourpatch, which happens to be a baby/kid top. I am going to make a cardi for me, basically by using the pattern raglan yoke, converting it to knitting flat, rather than in the round, and from the arms down, I will do my own thing 🙂 I am going to keep detailed project notes on the Ravelry project page.
I do hope I have enough of the colours, as actually, they are just half a skein or so, each. Also, two days ago, in a dog-ate-my-homework type of accident, my dear boy spilled my coffee over some of it 🙂 Well, we shall see.
Anyhoo, here is the first day progress (something is telling me it might be a quick knit, although the excitement may wane after I am done with the colour and onto the rows of white stockinette).
