WIP Wednesday

I technically worked on the sock this week, which you can only tell by looking at the progress keeper. These are going into my purse and I’ll be working on them tomorrow at swim lessons. I think I’ll be working on them on Finishing Friday too.

I’ve spent a lot of time working on the Farmhouse Cardigan. This pattern starts with the pocket linings, which is wonderful because they double as a gauge swatch. I’m on the second sleeve and hope to get that finished soon. After the sleeves it should be a big bulky project that stays at home. I’ve always knit the sleeves last with sweaters, and I think it will be nice to not be stuck on sleeve island after knitting the body. The yarn I’m using for the sweater is Cascade Eco+, it has been in my stash for a decade.

The yarn is actually much lighter. I’ll get a better photo next week.

The Farmhouse Cardigan is knit on size 9 needles, so it is going fast. I’m embracing my love for green sweaters and knitting two in a row. I’m really excited to see this sweater progress. If you know of a good button source please share it with me.

  1. I just love that sock – the slip stitches really highlight the yarn! The Farmhouse Cardigan is a lovely design – can’t wait to see what you do with it! What a cool idea to have the gauge swatch be something usable, and also starting with the sleeves. You are making great progress on it 🙂
