You know how I said that sock knitting was hurting my fingers and I needed another project to fall back on when the pain from gripping small needles appears? Well, I found one. And then, several episodes of Doctor Who later…
The “fallback” project seems to have somehow taken over. I didn’t touch my sock once yesterday. This was too much fun! :)
I’ve been wanting to make this baby/toddler cardigan ever since I first saw it. It was one of the main reasons why I bought the book (this one), though I love most the patterns in it. But somehow I could just never find the right yarn for it. Until two days ago, when I realized I had the perfect amount of the perfect yarn in my stash!
In DK weight on 3.5mm needles, after days of only sock knitting, this feels like super-loose knitting. The diamond pattern is easy to follow (even if you’re giving more attention to Matt Smith than to it) and is creating a sort of quilted look.
I have a feeling that I’ll need another fallback project soon… This one might not last much longer!
