Well now that Christmas has become Christmas Past and all that holiday knitting did as well…I am cruisin’ on my Ribbi Cardi. I worked on it here and there in the fall managing to get this far…
a whopping 8 inches. I picked the sorely neglected project up this past weekend and holy cow this baby flies. Now that I actually have time to knit it, this sweater has been cruising. This makes ME very happy. I have a terrible sweater past, but this one? Oh no, it swatched great, it’s knitting to be the same measurements as my favorite cardigan and it just looks wonderful. See? The back is done.
And, because I suffer from Second Sleeve Syndrome just as badly as Second Sock Syndrome, I am knitting the sleeves at the same time. This also assures all my decreases will be the same.
I am really excited about this sweater as it will be the third sweater I have ever knit. I am desperately seeking to overcome my own personal sweater curse. I have knit two sweaters in my past, both…well, maybe tomorrow’s post I will share my awful blighted sweater past.
