Test knit for the lovely Anne, test thread is here.
I’m keeping things simple, with no buttonholes and no waist shaping.

2017/10/28 - just started the back increases, I should be done by tonight and start the right front tomorrow.

2017/10/31 - finished the right front, moving on to the left.

2017/11/07 Just joined in the round. Got busy lately with municipal elections and stuff but I should be knitting up a storm this week-end to catch up.

2018/03/04 - Picked this project back up a couple weeks ago, just finished the body. I’m moving onto the sleeves this week and hopefully finishing this before the end of the month. I added a lot of length to the body for the cardigan to drop past my hips.

2018/03/27 - Just finished the first sleeve. For the cuff, since I’m working it over 60 sts, I decided to go down needle sizes twice (1X in 3.5, 1X in 3, 1X in 2.5) to taper it off towards the wrists. I’m working only 3 repeats of the lace instead of 4 as prescribed in the pattern because the sleeves are already more than long enough. Can’t wait to get this done, it will look amazing!

Good lord I can’t believe I haven’t touched this in over a year… there’s only one bloody sleeve left to do. Anyhow, I just started working the cap sleeve; hopefully I will be finishing this one up before the end of the month.

The stockinette portion of the sleeve is done, now moving onto to the lace portion.

Alright, finishing this cardigan today. It’s been on the needles for way too long.
