Shiny New Project

Hey guys! I'm knitting a million projects shiny green cardigan!!! It's so cool!

"But don't you have, like, five sweaters on the needles?"

Nine-ish, actually, but LOOK! SHINY AND GREEN!!!


Preeeeeeeeetty sweet, eh? ;) It's Grace, by the ever-so-talented Jane Richmond. My gauge is a bit iffy, but a violent blocking should fix it if my first measurement was more correct than my second (which was right on).

I've been in destash-mode rather than finish-everything mode. That'll change as December looms. That's when finish-all-the-things-itis hits me. Right now, I'm enjoying knitting lots of cute little things (this is the biggest project I've started for a while) and watching them fly off the needles as quickly as I had the urge to cast them on. I'll try to share some on Friday. I have a serious backlog of FOs piling up.

Working on anything fun? You should always have something fun on the needles!

  1. Oh man, that green is gorgeous. I keep meaning to knit more Jane Richmond but then reminding myself I have too much designing of my own to do . . . you are not helping matters with that pic!

    Also, nine? NINE?!

    1. It is! It smells good too, which is a strange thing to say about yarn, but it's true!

    1. Thank you! I hope so. I'm a little apprehensive about the sparkle, but it's not overwhelming.
