And The Winner Is….

Using a random number generator, the winner of yarn from my 100th post is Julie!  I’ll be in touch with her to talk about her prize. 

As for knitting the cardigan, I haven’t started anything yet.  I really haven’t been knitting much of anything.  I am slowly working on a white wrap cardigan for myself.  I also started some fingerless mitts, but I am not happy with the color of the yarn.  It’s blah and I’m struggling to finish the first one.  It’s probably going to move into the UFO pile.  I have made some decisions on the cardigan for Addie though.  I’m definitely going to knit the Tuckernuck.  Most likely it will be out of the Malabrigo.  I’ve also decided to make a shrug, mostly for the instant gratification that I’ll get from it. 

I have this half finished cardigan that I’m just not crazy about anymore.  I started it years ago and stopped when I screwed up a sleeve.  I have a sneaking suspicion that I don’t have enough yarn to finish this.  So I’m ripping it out to redo it as a shrug.  There should be plenty of yardage for a shrug, even one that’s longer than a traditional shrug.  The only bad part?  Ripping out miles of this knitted I-cord edging…

 

I hated knitting this edging.  It was miserable, but somehow I managed to slog my way through it all.  Ripping it out might be a job for a stronger person than me.

  1. Tuckernuck is going to be so darling!

    I’m so sorry you have to rip out your half-finished cardigan 😦 If I was there I’d offer to do it for you! We could have margaritas (or your choice) first to bolster our courage 😉
