After finishing off my cabled hat last week, I decided I should resist the urge to begin another something new and put some work into an old UFO instead. This cardigan has been “in progress” for more than 3 years. It was far overdue for some love.
By the end of the weekend, I’d accomplished the second half of the first sleeve, ribbing around its cuff, and the first half of the next sleeve, too.
Go figure…when I work on a project, it really does get closer to done!
Not sure whether I want to go back and redo that first cuff. When I added the ribbing to the body, I noticed how it ended up bulkier and thus a little wider than the body itself–a lightly ruffled look. Sadly, in the MONTHS since I’d worked that ribbing, I forgot that little detail and thus neglected to switch to a smaller hook when I began the cuff ribbing.
I think I’m going to switch hooks at the cuff for the second sleeve and compare them before I decide for sure which one I like better. The flared version is pretty, but it doesn’t strike me as practical. I generally like my cuffs to stay firmly put.
I’m still reading and enjoying last week’s book, but there’s not much of it left. Haven’t decided yet what will take its place once those few final pages are past.
Thanks as always to Ginny to for hosting another Yarn Along this week. Click on over and check it out!
