WIP Wednesday

I am having so much fun knitting this cardigan! I almost forgot to start cooking supper, does this ever happen to you? I did however manage to put my knitting back in my basket for a short while and start making a chicken curry with coconut milk and wild rice… anyway back to the cardigan… I have finished the yoke and have cast off the stitches for the armholes. I just added the extra stitches that I cast on to the front sides and back of the cardigan and still cast off the same armhole stitches as the original pattern states. I am going to knit straight down without shaping so it is really easy knitting from now onwards, until I pick up stitches around the armhole for the sleeves.

We have a huge leaf pile underneath our treehouse, the children swing on their rope swing and land in the pile, so much fun, so I thought this would be the perfect spot for the progress photo, except sweet Charlie was pouncing on my ball of wool every chance he got!

I have started a thread on my Mamma4earth Ravelry group for anyone who is knitting the Shalom KAL you are most welcome to post progress potos and chat about your pattern notes:)

If you would like to join the Shalom KAL, just go here for more information.

P.S. also just wanted to let Wendy (Glenaeon Class 3, 2010) know that you have won a pattern from a previous giveaway and I don’t have your email address to email it to you, if you could send it to me that would be lovely:)

Thanks so much for visiting:) what are your WIPs at the moment?

    Oh, who’s done a bit of knitting then?!? I still haven’t done the casting off, it is on my “to do” list for tonight. Yours looks to be about the same size as mine, so hopefully mine will be o.k. Off to check your Ravelry group 🙂

    Your sweater looks so beautiful! I am hoping that my photo on my blog today is a little blurry to hide my mistakes, but I am enjoying knitting as well. That curry sounds yummy too!

    What a handsome cat! Oh, and the cardigan is lovely, too. : )

    I’m forging ahead on my May socks for my self-imposed sock-of-the-month club:


    April’s socks are highlighted on my new knitting blog:

    i envy your looooong cable….mine is al scrunched onto the 36 inch knitpicks- which does not help the crap photo or my overly tight knitting!

    The cardigan is looking great and your cat is beautiful although a little cross, did you take his yarn away?

    Dear Halfpint,
    Thanks about the cardi:) as for sweet Charlie, I’m afraid I had to take the yarn away, he was having way too much fun:)
