Racing the clock with a cardigan

I’m hoping I get this thing done before it starts getting cool around here. Not that it’s ever exactly *warm* in my office, but I’d like to have it finished and blocked before I have to wear it from my house to work.

In any case, it’s coming along nicely, warts and all.

Working on the first sleeve, as you can see. I wish I’d done some more of these so I had some slight idea of what the hell I was doing – but it’s not like that’s ever stopped me in the past.

    Well, I’ve only ever made them in the round, but that *looks* like a sleeve alright. I like the braid — you picked up along the side edge afterwards, yes?

    Woohoo! A knitter after my own heart!

    “You mean there’s directions for the sleeves? Oh. Well… I’ve already started knitting them so there’s really no need to look at the directions now- maybe if I make this again I’ll take a look.”

    I always figure that Knitting is like love, you just jump in with both feet and forget that whole “Looking around for the directions” bit. It can turn out to be heartbreaking, sure, but its one hell of a ride.

    Its looking really good!

    Really lovely!
    I am a big fan of the cardigan in general, and in fact, am still bravely forging ahead with Avast! which is not nearly so pretty a pattern, I realize now. Pretty nonetheless, but yours has that really nice braid.

    Looks great, bro! Just remember – directions? We don’ need no stinkin’ directions!
