Notes

This is fun to knit. The back’s a bit boring but good for knitting with friends.

Shortened the cardi by 3 hexagons, because this beautiful yarn is sold out.

After a break I worked a little further and knitted the sleeves (both together) in 2 days. The next morning I saw all parts together. Used 10 skeins for the cardi without the border. Now I am working on the little hexagons.

Sadly I discovered after 2 hexagons …. that I hate knitting hexagons…oh my… every little piece was a pain. Its not the patterns fault! I don’t like starting all over again and again and again and…
I guess modular knitting is not for me.

March 2016, only 4 Hexagon to go, starting with a new ball of yarn (02 left)
