Nothing new, but something blue ;o)

There is a slow progress on my latest cardigan; the baby blue one. And the green one is still stand by. I am in lack of energy during the afternoons, despite the fact that the days are getting longer and lighter. Getting settled in my new job has dominated days and sometimes nights, but I am getting there. Going away for a few days during Easter might help me getting my knitting spirit back.

Naughty Knitter

The title of todays post is referring to the "promise" I made in my last post: I would rip and redo the green cardie before posting anything else. Well. I misbehaved! I finished this Noro Coucharon vest instead. Actually, I double-misbehaved, as I did not make this thingy into a long sleeved jacket as planned. To make a nice sleeve joint I would have to make the body smaller, or narrower. As it is now, the shoulders/arm holes hangs a few inches down my upper arm. At the knitting café last week, we decided I should have a go for a short sleeved jacket, using the last few yards of the Noro yarn to knit up stitches and add a couple of inches around the arm holes, forming little sleeves. This is the result - but I am not sure this garment will survive for long... the yarn is far too precious to end as a little used garment. I said "little used" on purpose, as I do plan to use it a bit to see if I like wearing it enough to justify NOT ripping it

Soooo fuzzzzy

Here we go again... the Noro Kocharon has been teamed up with Miski (100 % baby lama!) + some DK alpaca and will soon be adding to my growingly significant collection of cardigans! More details and photos later. To make the chronology right I will really have to get a grip and do the rip (irresistible rhyme there) of the Good Greens from last month, finish it (again) and post FO-photos of that one before I complete this one ;o)
