In September I decided to expand my knitting skills with another cardi- this time knitted in the round on chunky 6mm needles. Easy peasy. And it was! Until I got to the sleeves. Having never knitted anything in the round before I found the garter stitch a fiddle. Knit one row, purl the next. My first sleeve had ladders all the way down from the change from one DPN to the next. But I got there in the end. However, put off by the fiddly-ness of sleeve number one and a raft of commissions and Christmas, Annabel went back into her bag for a few months. Until January when I decided to just get on with it, and it took just a few evenings to finish it. The pattern is Annabel by Quince & Co...
Soft, warm and cosy. Perfect. I think I'd like another one. Maybe next winter, I can't face waiting six months for more sleeve motivation! I'm hoping to try another cardigan soon though- perhaps Andi Sutterland's Miette cardi? Suggestions please! Simplicity is key.
