Apologies for the rubbish photo. As usual, I left it until Sunday morning before asking MrC rto take a photo. He's on his way out to the boat and in a hurry, so he fires off half a dozen and leaves. It was sunny and the colours were washed out when we went outside, so he took some with me in the hallway.
Not only were they a bit dark, but he didnt' centre me! I've had to crop off a large bit of wall!
This is a Two Little Plums design. Last summer I knitted Sandshore, and they're pretty similar in design. Top down raglan, open, wide ribbing, a patterned back panel. Sandshore had an asymmetrical lace panel (which I centred!) adn Crosscountry has a textured centred back panel. Unfortunately the photos didn't really show off the panel - it's just a type of broken rib pattern.
I only had six ends to darn in (courtesy of cone knitting) and yet I STILL managed to elave in the contrast yarn I had darned through the beginning of the sleeve so that I could easily measure the length! I just need to snip that out and the cardigan iss done. I've been wearing it around the house. Although it's similar to the last one I knitted, Effortless, that one has droopy fronts, this one is just open.
I'm 13% done with the next one, Wishs. This is yet again another top down ralan, but it's by Joji Locatelli and veers slightly away from the typical top down raglan (on the fronts, not the actual way you increase for raglan. I'm past the sleeve - but wait! There is A LOT of knitting to go. I'm now increasing across the row, and will do another two increases before I'm done on the body.
I had to change yarn :(. The Rowan Summerlite was just too floppy at theis looser tension. I could only find some Rowan Wool Cortton with htis yardage. Unfortunately it's pink. I can't seem to get away from red and pink! Why don't I have more blues and greens in cardigan yardages?? I've said that I'll knit a baby cardigan next month, and the girl is just so traditional, wants pale pink...
