It's the Common Ground. Knitting cardigans make me nervous. You know, it is going to fit etc.
And don't you Elizabeth Zimmerman me and ask if I got gauge.
Gauge shmauge. I just want to knit!
Regardless, it's a well written pattern and my first time using Cascade Ecological Wool. My friend the Quiet DA is a huge fan. It yields an unwieldy sized ball /cake of yarn. It feels softer on my hands than I thought it would, and the color is rich and a little heathered. It's bulky weight knit on larger needles (US10 & 9s), so I anticipate it will knit up fairly quickly.
I'm essentially at the very beginning of the body just after the raglan shaping and dividing for sleeves. I have about 17 rows of stockinette before I dive into the lace pattern. Should be interesting.
Hopes and dreams for this thing? That it is finished by March 15. That it's good for a Saturday morning in yoga pants with a hot cup of coffee or tea and a soccer match either The Kid's or on the t.v. I don't need a perfect fit, just a hug.
I'm knitting this over in the My Sister's Knitter group on Ravelry. What's your WIP? Are you knitting along somewheres?
