The title of this post quite aptly describes my Marina cardigan that I cast on as mentioned in my last post! I’m getting along very well – having knitted and blocked the back and both fronts and just finished the first sleeve.
Unfortunately I do need to frog and reknit part of my right front where I didn’t do the decreases for the shoulder shaping properly (I iz moron), but other than that, it’s looking good!
I’m going to cast on for the next sleeve tomorrow and immediately commence a plan that will allow me to lose a few pounds, as I suspect I might need it to show the cardigan off to it’s best advantage!
So once the sleeve is finished, it’ll be on to the seaming – I’ve never seamed reverse stockinette stitch before so who knows what will happen. Then it’s a case of applying the i-cord edge and crocheting the trim at the bottom of the cardi and the sleeves. Last and by no means least, buttons!
I’m hoping to get this finished off within the next week – I’ve been working on it for ten days so far (since the 17th), so that would be pretty speedy all in all!
This means I will get to wear it at Knit Nation 🙂
Finally, because I don’t like leaving posts without at least one picture in them, here’s Kooky sunning herself in the back yard recently, looking very akin to feline royalty:
