Title of today’s post brought to you by my spam filter!
I’ve made progress on my owls cardigan. I had to use my daylight lamp to get enough light to photograph so excuse the slightly washed-out look. There’s only so much to can do with a free image software toolbar!
The short rows have worked out well and dropped the fronts down nicely. I’m working the waist decreases alternately at the sides and the middle of the pieces to give some more uniform shaping. I’ll do the same when increasing for the hips.
The unequal split for the fronts and back has worked well and while it looks odd laying flat, I can assure you that the fit is good. Nice and roomy in the front!
I haven’t been making fast work on this becuase of a slight distraction in the form of a crocheted item for a contest.
It’s my first crochet design. I’m nothing if not
Here’s an up-and-coming attraction for you
Although the colour is way off (I could not get it right either on the camera or in post-production but it’s much darker and more blue) this is a skein of Posh Yarn‘s Chloe lace-weight. Now with added sparkles! I’m going to use this for a knit-along starting at the beginning of February called The Blooming KAL (run over on Ravelry). I bought the yarn with birthday money sent by my grandmother. A good investment, I think!
