Funky Update

Since I am still fighting with my grandpa cardigan and the latest yarn I purchased for it, I figured that now is a great time to give an update on the funky grandpa cardigan.


I am now into my second 440 yard skein of the main color, and plugging away at it. The pattern suggests 9 stripes from under the arm down, but since I am rather tall in height and long of torso, I suspect 9 won’t actually do. I’ve currently got 8 stripes, and I’ll try it on at 9, but I am pretty sure I’ll have to keep knitting.

As for the grandpa cardigan, I need to do some gauge checking to see if I can go down a needle size since my rowan felted tweed dk is not knitting into a nicer fabric than my last yarn did. Very frustrating!
