Last week I intended to show you the yarns I’m going to swatch and the patterns I’m considering. I even took the photos, but then I cast on for GYC (Garter Yoke Cardigan) and all I’ve done since is knit!
1. Herringbone Rib Socks – first sock is done! I even wove the ends in. Goal: knit at least a few inches of the leg on the second sock. Gratuitous photo of even more herringbone rib:
2. Wisp – same as last week. I really did go out and try to buy buttons. I found some for Wisp, but didn’t find any for GYC. With only half of what I needed and a checkout line 20+ people deep I decided I didn’t need buttons that bad.
3. Garter Stitch Yoke Cardigan (GYC) – making nice progress. This has been quick and enjoyable to knit so far. The only modification I’ve made has been to knit extra rows for length in a few places. The body is almost done. Here’s the poorly lit self-timer shot:
And yes, if you’re wondering – I *did* knit a swatch back in December using the yarn that I am knitting GYC with.
