Remember me?

Hi there! Remember me? I was all fired up to join this KAL and then didn't post on the blog for the entire month? Remember? Well I'm back! And posting once again, as today marks the official end of the KAL, right?

Honestly, I don't know why I join these things, I never participate as I should. But in my defense, there has been a LOT going on chez DearKnits over the past month. For instance, the only reason I have time to post this morning is because I'm home from work, waiting to accompany my husband to the hospital where he'll be having plastic surgery on his hand for the second time in 3 weeks. Fun!

Be that as it may, I have been participating in spirit, and I have a finished object to share!

Yup, I went with the Garter Yoke Cardigan after all, knit with Shelridge Farm Soft Touch W4 in the Cranberry colourway. I bought this yarn at Rhinebeck last year, and I figured it'd be a good idea to use it before buying more this year. Sadly, I won't be going after all (see above mention of husband's surgery - *sigh*), but I'll still have a lovely cardigan! (you know, once it's done blocking and I sew on the buttons).

I think I might be addicted to this knitting cardigans thing. I've already got the yarn and pattern lined up for the next one: it'll be the Honeybee Cardigan using Malabrigo Sock. Yum! But before I can get to that, there's the impendingness of Christmas to deal with...

Happy Knitting Everyone!

Congratulations on your FO! Looks lovely. Such a pretty colour.
Hope your husband recovers quickly from his surgery.

That looks like a great cardigan and pretty impressive considering everything that is going on at your house.
