I was all “I am going to do the Grandpa Cardigan, not the Funky Grandpa cardigan!” And then? Well, I thought a bit more about the grandpa cardigan, and how the yarn was knitting up all loosey goosey and annoying, and discussed it with a friend of mine, and came to the conclusion that I would be VERY unhappy to knit an entire cabled cardi just to have loose cables that flop instead of pop.
So, I ordered new yarn for the Grandpa Cardigan, and now I have to wait.
In the meantime, until the yarn arrives, I’ve decided to get a head start on the Funky Grandpa.
It’s just a very little bit of the back. It’s bright and cheery and I have high hopes for it, even though it will be interrupted when the yarn arrives for the Grandpa Cardigan.

What a bummer about the yarn, hopefully you won’t have to wait long for the new yarn. The KAL is slow on my end too. I could not manage any knitting all weekend, I had started the fronts before that.
I, too, hope it shows up quickly. Now that I’ve worked out where I was messing up on the set up rows, at least I know once the yarn shows up I get get started and catch up fairly easily without the evenings of failure I had the first time around.
I love your color selection for this one. I’m looking forward to seeing it progress!
