Rainy Day

It's raining today -- and supposed to tomorrow and the next day and the next. So we'll think a lot about May flowers, right? The view out my window now.

But hey, this is a knitting blog, more or less. And I continue to jump around from project to project there. My favorite big cardigan finally just wore out so I have turned again to working on the lace cardigan from the holiday 2008 issue of Vogue Knitting. It is slow going because it is knit in the round and I am wide. The pattern calls for a coat length, but I am making mine hip-length. I am using fingering weight merino from Colourmart, a yarn I like a lot, and using 3.25 mm needles.

I am working to complete 6 rows a day. Slow and steady wins the race.

I continue to work on the lace pieces as well but not enough to show you yet.

Rain means knitting and a movie, so I am off to do just that.
