Although I don't feel as if I'm knitting much these cays, there is progress. I HAVE FINISHED THE KNITTING ON HAMLIN PEAK!
This has been, surprisingly, a fairly quick knit. I started it on 22nd March, and finished it last night,, 10th April. Two weeks and five days, That includes other knitting, stash diving and ravelry browsing. I also had to frog back several inches jsut before dividing for the sleevesm My fault,. A combination of using too short circulars, and not putting the knitting away. It fell off the needles at one edge, and when I tired to hook it up the damn yarn broke.
This was old stash, some Summer Tweed in Lilac, not a colour I'd choose these days, but it shouldn't clash with my summer wardrobe.
Sorry about the photo, taken this morning before work, with the curtains still closed!
I think, for summer cardigans, I prefer ones wiht less front, so that I don't overheat, But this was a great pattern, Very easy and I like the increases, It's like a M1L but you knit into the front, not the back. I jsut insert the righthand needle into the strand, front to back and knit it. They eyelets are not as open as yarnovers but provide a little interest in a plain stocking stitch cardigan.
The only bit where you have to think is after dividing for the body. There's back darts and side increases, I'm not entirely convinced that shaping is necessary. Thi isn't a structured garment and the yarn I've used is Summer Tweed,
Now where's the warmer weather?
