What? No back?

What? No back?
I am trying to sympathize with you eastern folks with your snowstorm by eating soup, baking carrot cake and knitting on my chunky cardigan. It’s because I care. Oh yeah, it’s 80 degrees here today. Don’t be a hater, it’ll be winter here soon enough – though I pretty much guarantee it won’t snow.

I picked up my Phildar chunky cardie and it’s really going quickly.  I started with the sleeves in oder to get back in the swing of a pattern written in French, which I sadly don’t speak.  Then I decided the fronts would be easier than the back and made those, figuring out the chart.  Well the chart is pretty darn simple – it’s a 15 stitch cable.

Now I felt ready to start the back and looked at the pattern instructions and realized the back has no cables at all, it’s just 3/3 ribbing!  I’m such a dork, the back is so darn easy and I put it off figuring there would be cables.  At least it’s an easy knit that I can take it up and put it down without a thought, espcially when football watching.

Maybe I’ll get this done before the weather starts dipping down into the frosty 60s…

  1. Ya know, if those people ever dig out, they’re going to come looking for you. ;^)

    I love the cardie so far! Hurry up and finish it so I can see how it turns out.


  2. I’ve been going through a spree of translating French patterns (Bergere de France) into English. It goes pretty quickly once you get the hang of it. Oddly, I find it easier to translate French patterns than German patterns.
