On my last WIP Wednesday post I shared my Abalone Cardigan - I had frogged this several times and eventually decided that I didn't like the yarn/pattern combination so it went to the frog pond permanently, it was a good decision to make and I felt positive coming away from it. So what happens to that beautiful green tweed? Well I think it will make a shawl/hat/gloves combo for winter - I have 10 skeins so the world is my very green oyster.
Obviously right now I'm working on some socks, a dinosaur and of course my Hogwarts ball shawl - I didn't really need to cast something else on but somehow I just did. I was really excited to be knitting my first cardigan (the abalone) so I decided to have a look at other patterns - and came across the Garter Stitch Swingy Sweater. I fell in love with the asymmetrical front right away; did some stash diving and came up with this:
I'm about another 10 or so rows off splitting for the sleeves; it's a lovely easy knit - I personally love garter stitch (I know it's not a huge favourite of most but hey ho). It's just a nice potato chippy knit and I'm excited to continue on.
What are you working on this week? I'm playing along with Tami and Ginny once again. Pop by tomorrow and Saturday; I'm actually blogging this week!!
