In spite of the fact that I haven’t been posting on this blog over the past year, I have still actually been working on fiber arts here and there. Some of it has been for my Doctor of Ministry classes and dissertation project, and some has just been regular knitting and such. So. . . . I thought it might be time to start trying to record things again. A New Year’s resolution if you will.
I’m in the midst of writing my dissertation and am beginning to see an end to that. But I don’t want to post those projects until the dissertation is complete and turned in. The finished product is due April 15.
What I’m working on right now is the Twisted Rib Cardigan from “Knitting Goes Large” by Sharon Brant.
I’m using Jo Sharp Luxury 8 ply DK Pure Wool in color 353 Fleur. I have the back and one front side completed. Now I’m working on the other side.
This is a great project because once I got the pattern down I could just knit on it in the evenings without really having to think about it. Only problem is that it’s taking a pretty long time and by the time I finish it, the cold weather will be gone. The fabric knitted with this pattern is REALLY heavy so this will be a very warm cardigan.
