Don't get me wrong, I'm making good progress. I'm just making bored progress. Mostly though, I'm unsure if I can slide it onto scrap yarn and say 'eureka!' and separate sleeves and body and carry on to complete the body. The body which I expect to take forever, this thing (Lisa Mutch's Lenore cardigan) is drapey and will not stop with the increases until the absolute very end.
Thankfully the yarn is Posh Sadie Sock and is a treat to use. It's shiny like silk but the tencel isn't slippery in the same way as that would be. The wool content is cool on the hands, a wonderful thing in the muggy heat we've been having.
Not helped by trying to finish off the rainbow mittens I showed last week.
And limping along on the berry coloured cardi below on the right.
That's my Rosabell cardigan, by Cecliy Glowik MacDonald, the one I started on my birthday last October. I had to put it aside for a while and wait for a knitting congregation to weigh in on the body length. Now that I'm jigging the sleeves I'm concerned the body still needs a few more inches. It's not as short as the pattern states, but not super long either.
I could, however, be swayed to leave the body as is and even knit the sleeves as the pattern is written: 3/4. It's right about where the sleeves should end now. My indecision might force me to set it aside and wait for another gathering of knitters to assist my process. Of course, if I stop the sleeve now I'll do it with the end of skein two and will be able to get sleeve two down with yarn to spare from skein three. Since I'm rather taken with this Vintage Purls Sock colour, Perrault, having some left to play with is appealing.
Cropped cardi with 3/4 sleeves? Shall I do it? Should I? Will I look okay? What will I wear it with?
I might just do it to be done with it. Bloody Libran indecision.
