yes! finally finished, blocking as i type. i used Jeny’s surprisingly stretchy bind-off, but i used a crochet-hook, much more comfortable!
preblocking the cardigan had a great fit, wet the fabric got very stretchy, but i think it will shrink again a bit while drying.
the yarn is great, a bit splitty- specially on the bind-off, and the fabric is lovely. thin and warm.

slowprogress, finally on the bands. first side done, second and neck left to be knitted still…

started knitting on the sleeves again. can anybody tell me what size i am knitting this in?! ;)
or why there are no decreases as the pattern specified?
… lets see…

i think i want to knit the breezy cardigan by Hannah Fettig, but i also wanted to try the contigous method…. hm…

i nearly finished the first skein yesterday, and i got to after the first decrease row on the body. i am still puzzling on how to deal with the colorchange of the yarn. although maybe thats just part of it, because of the way of construction and the colorchanges in the yarn it won’t be all the same!

getting there, i finished the second ball on the body, not having started the ribbing yet. now with the third ball i am knitting both sleeves at once. that gives me an estimate and when i finished the sleeves, i can go on with the bodylength, if i want to.
ball nr.4 is a different dyelot, but i figure, if i am using it on the ribbing-bordure all around the cardigan you will not notice it that much….
the fabric is lovely, the yarn is very nice!

going to rome, taking this project with me, what do i see, now already late to get dressed and get to work, i took the needles off?! at least i caught it in time! one should NEVER do that! and i keep catching me having done it so many times, bad, bad habit….
