Things are about to get boring on the blogfront...
Yep... on Saturday, I bit the bullet and started the Lestrange cardigan.
The charts seem daunting at first, but really, it's not that bad. However, progress is very slow. It's knit in one piece (bottom up_), with fingering weight yarn, on 3.25mm needles. After almost a solid weekend of knitting, I'm only about four inches in. And this is a full-length jacket style cardigan with a big, shawl collar. This one is going to take a while.
I'd like to be monogamous as possible on this one, otherwise, I know it will get tucked in a corner somewhere and neglected. Ideally, I'd like to be wearing this by my birthday (mid-December). But that means there might not be whole lot of bloggable content - I can only show so many pictures of a slowly growing cardigan.
I'll try to keep things exciting, but if the posts start to drop off, know that I still love you all - I'm just buried under a mountain of silky-soft dark arts knitting.
