It’s been a long time since I blogged about knitting! Whew. Well, after all that thinking and worrying, worrying and thinking, about the navy Sterling yarn and the Mushishi, I decided to shelve the Mushishi project. With the Sterling yarn, I designed an a-line pullover with an empire waist and lace trim on the cuffs and hem. I knit one sleeve a few weeks ago and then took a break from it for a while in order to work on some krrmmmm…mmmm…er… yeah.
Yesterday I got back to it. After thinking about it for a while, I changed the pattern to a cropped cardigan, not a-line. This was because I have envisioned wearing it buttoned over a long solid-colored tee (like a set – not to wear the cardigan as a removable jacket). So I rewrote the pattern and knit the right front piece. Today I am working on the back piece (the largest piece of the garment). Here is a pic of the sleeve for you, after washing and blocking. The lace edge is the same pattern used in the Ocean Wave shawl (turquoise, completed about six weeks ago). It’s a nice easy lace pattern and has become my default lace pattern.
