Finally, a Beginning

Well, it may have taken quite awhile longer than I anticipated, but I am finally well on my way with the Grandpa Cardigan. The Rowan Felted Tweed DK is….maybe not the best choice but I am going with it anyhow. I do love the softness of the yarn, and I suspect I’ll really enjoy the finished object, but I don’t think it’s quite thick enough to really pop the cables properly.


I’ve got the back knit to the armpits, and one of the fronts knit to the point where I need to start increasing for the armpits. It won’t be much longer before I have the fronts and back connected.

It feels pretty good to have obligation knitting wrapped up on the last weekend before Christmas. I’ve one more stocking to finish and two or three itty bitty socks, but those are all easy to accomplish in the time I have left, so I get to do knitting that’s more selfish for now. Very pleasant.
