Even though it is the middle of summer, I am working on sweaters for the fall. I just finished this cable cardigan which is from the Minnies book by Jil Eaton and I used her yarn also which was a merino wool. This is a size 18-24 months and was created on size 9 needles. I did change where I marked the sleeves on the body and increased it by one inch which I thought might give C.C. a little more room to swing his arms at his brothers (in play or defense).
I seemed to really stall while working on this project. I would lose my cable needle in the sofa or I seemed to be misplacing it constantly. I think the pattern is written well, but I think my brain was occupied elsewhere. ho hum. The little guy wore it around to model for us, and I think I raised his temperature by a few degrees since it is such a nice thick wool.
I am crazy about the color and I almost always seem to choose some sort of wooden type button for all of the boys sweaters over the years. Unless there is some interesting, artisan made buttons that I can locate. Next I am to finish my rug hooking project that I made an error on and had to ignore it for a month or so.
