Sandy Cardigan

Did I mention this design is from Big Girl Knits. Here are a couple more shots. I wish there were more hours in a day so I could knit to my heart's content.

I am working the short rows on the lower left side now. Once I work up to the armhole area I will switch to knitting all the way around, and the short row shaping will be on top to make a sleeve cap. After that shaping it is just the simple decreases of working down on a sleeve. In the end there will only really be the two arm seams to sew. Each piece is knit onto the previous. A very clever design I must say. It was designed by Emma Crew. The wool I am using is Vero, made in Italy for Naturally (variegated stuff) and the deeper green wool is Schachenmayr Nomotta Mega. I love the two together. Originally I planned to work it all in the variegated and thought it would be too much striping in every direction.

Good call eh?
