it's been a while...

I finally got around to blocking daisy. Which means that I've got tons of seams ahead of me. I think I have some anxiety about doing this. The other sweaters that I have complete have been done in the round and required little to no seaming. I will be diving into this adventure tonight.

Also, I picked up Rosa again. I'm just starting on the chevron pattern of the back. This will become my bus project so it should start moving faster.

almost done with daisy...

I finished knitting daisy last night. woohoo! Hopefully, I'll get to blocking the pieces tonight. If I can get that done, then on Friday, I'll be able to do all of the seaming.

With that project coming to a close, I'm going to get to go back to working on Rosa. I'm about half way through the front and would love to finish her before I go to Florida at the end of July.

still knitting...

Over the weekend, I was able to finish the 2nd sleeve for Daisy. That means that most of the 2x2 rib is done. It took about a month to knit the first sleeve and about 4 days to do the second one. My last piece is the front, right. I'm about half way through that.

I'm going to make another push toward finishing the knitting this weekend. With any luck, I'll be sporting a new cardigan within a week...Assuming I can get in the right mindset to seam the whole thing! Good thing it's summertime and there are tons of repeats on tv.
