Even though I’m done knitting the Blue Devil Angora sweater, I’m still dealing with the finishing. As you can see from the photo at left, heaping helpings of spaghetti are on offer around here. I’m slowly weaving in those ends, but because that makes me insane, I alternate weaving with knitting.
After the pain in the ass of this Blue Devil project, I decided to start something EASY! I wanted to use my new Shelridge Farm Wool/Cotton DK weight that I snatched up in Maryland a few weeks ago. The DK weight matched nicely with the Marilyn’s Not-so-Shrunken Cardigan pattern I’ve been meaning to make. I’m going to make the body longer and fitted at the waist and maybe long sleeves if the yarn holds out. So far so good on the knitting up. It’s a simple top down raglan, and has thus far been a good antidote to the spaghetti junction insanity.
P.s. Check out the cute button Marcy made for my sister’s MS Ride Fundraiser! Claudia’s shooting for raising $20,000 in the knitting community! It’s up in the upper left corner of my blog and is adorable. Give if you can, there’s prizes – other than trying to cure an awful disease, that is!
