Not as Zippy as I have thought…

So, I have mentioned that after finishing Sourpatch, I started a quick little project as my second project for Very Shannon´s Summer Sweater KAL. It is actually a cardigan for my boy, that I decided to cal Zippy, as it is based on a cute zipper I found some time ago.

I thought it would take me a week at max. After all, it is a toddler´s cardi, on fairly big needles, so what? Well, that was on August  18th and back then, I certainly did not know I was going to knit the thing 3 times. I mean, would you believe it?

I actually forgot that knitting a toddler´s thing with measurements based on what he is wearing NOW may very well mean he would grow out of it before it is even finished. We realized that a good while after I joined the body and the sleeves and made a good progress on the yoke. Grrr.

So I thought, OK, instead of 108 for the body, lets cast 120. Guess what I found when I got to the underarms? That – probably due to my coma-nearing constant state of tiredness – I only cast on 100. So I managed to make it even smaller!

Well, I tried again and this is where I am today.

Won´t take me long to get to the underarms and the sleeves should be fairly quick, so maybe, this time, I will get there and show you the cute thing next week 🙂
