Just a couple more inches to knit on the body of the cardigan and then I can move on to the neckband and then the sleeves.
For some knitters, the large amount of stockinette stitch in this cardigan would be a chore to finish, but not for me. I enjoy this stitch. It keeps my hands busy and my mind free. It's been the perfect project for evening knitting in front of the TV.
This cardigan has also been a good traveling companion on all of the trips we've been on lately. It's easy to put down and pick up later without having to relearn some complicated stitch pattern or spend time figuring out exactly what to do next. I'll pack it in my suitcase for this week's trip to Charleston, South Carolina.
This will be my first trip to Charleston and I'm excited about it. We'll have one full day to explore, so check back in a couple of days for pictures.
P.S. Playing around with the new template layout options on Blogger Beta. Are these color choices too hard to read? Should I go back to the white background? Let me know what you think.
Please Read: Ignore the note above about template color changes. I've already changed back. I was trying out a dark background. I liked the way the pictures "popped" on it, but the text was too hard to read. The white background is much easier on the eyes.
