Summer Sweater Knit Along Progress

I was shopping in a toy superstore not long back and a woman walked past wearing a jumper that was really similar in colour to the cardigan that I am knitting as part of the summer sweater knit along with luvinthemommyhood. This woman was wearing a blue and white  gingham shirt with her jumper, and to be honest I wouldn’t have thought ot pair the two items together. Is it weird that I followed her around the shop to get a good look at her shirt? I have since been on the search for such a shirt and finally spied a vaguely similar one in tesco the other day 🙂

sorry about the teeny tiny image, it’s the best I could lift off the Tesco site

As for my progress with my yellow ‘lavender jacket in blue’ cardigan, I have finished the main body and have sewn up the shoulders. It looks ok, but only ok (not that I am a perfectionist, you understand). I have no idea how to successfully graft two bound off sections of brioche stitch together and there were no suggestions on the pattern notes.

I have had a few issues getting my head around the pattern when it comes to knitting the sleeves. It does annoy me when you pay for a pattern, only to be left bemused by what it is telling you to do……pick up stitches around the armhole and then knit backwards and forwards… that even possible?

Anyhow I have made a start on the first sleeve and have checked my yarn situation. Thankfully it looks as though I will have plenty left to get the project done. I just need to decide whether to go for 3/4 length or full length sleeves….

There are no reviews yet.
