Holy flying needles, Batman!

I have to admit it - I surprised myself with this one....
Yep - that's the Sunny Cardigan - off the needles and on the blocking board. Boy was this one a fast knit. I cast on for this one on the 19th. I did a fair chunk of it that night, and then I didn't touch it again until Friday. By the end of  Friday, I was past the yoke. I didn't pick it up again until Saturday evening, and by bed time, I was almost done the body. Today was the last few pattern repeats, then edgings.

If you were doing the shrug version (I did) in one of the smaller sizes (this is size 4-5) you could conceivably knit this in a weekend.

I do have to say though, while I love seamless knitting, it can make things tricky to block. Especially when it comes to something like Peacock lace. I made a similar shrug for myself, and it was done in pieces - it blocked waaaay easier.

But this will do and while it's drying, I'm off to search out some buttons for it. More details will follow in the FO post.
