For those of you that have been participating in the Ravellenics, you know we only have one day left to finish our projects. I haven't been posting a lot, but I sure have been knitting. After finishing the Big Montana Tunic (again), I wanted to knit just one more sweater for myself. Last Saturday, I received a sweater's worth of yarn I had ordered from Webs' summer sale and so of course, I cast on.
The yarn is Classic Elite's Moorland, a really interesting blend of merino, alpaca, mohair, and acrylic. This blend really lends to a soft yarn in a marled color, that also sheds and splits. It's really beautiful but can also be a pain when you're trying to pick up a dropped stitch.
The pattern is the Bailey Cardigan by Amy Christoffers. Right now that I weigh about 55 pounds more than I normally do, I'm all about the open front cardigans. At this point I've knit the entire body, woven in all the ends, and blocked it. I'm working on the sleeves (which are knit in the round then set in) and am anticipating that I'll be done by the closing ceremonies!
I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.
