In a cheap ploy to buy myself a bit more time to make a wee bit of progress on my Darling Emma cardigan, which I am knitting as part of a KAL with Karen and Steph (check out their progress – both have beautiful sweaters coming together), I decided to move my updates to Saturdays. So here it is and progress has been made! Slowly but surely, it’s growing in lovely, lacy, cardigany length. And while it still mostly looks like a shapeless blob, rather than an elegant lace cardigan, I’m beginning to grow quite fond of it.
And the pattern is quite nice to work. The lace repeat is very easy to memorize, so it makes for nice tv knitting with minor attention required when counting the lace stitches. The purl rows still feel a bit endless, though, but who really enjoys purling anyway?
So it’s getting there. Slowly. But that’s what I get for having three sweaters on my needles at the same time (with two that require that I swap my 3.5mm needles back and forth between projects). Maybe by the end of the year one of them will actually be finished.
