...with Ginny at Small Things.
I am a little late to the Yarn Along today but I am excited to share about this little sweater. It's my 26th wedding anniversary today and my beloved has been home all to celebrate (cramping my blogging style).
I cast on a Tiny Tea Leaves Cardigan for Faith on Saturday morning before I left for a road trip to see my grandma in Cincinnati. She's 95 years old and Faith and I love to see her every chance we get. My mom was going, so Faith and I road along -- four generations of German women together. Good stuff. And since my mom was driving I was free to knit for two hours each way. Yea!
I got a lot accomplished on my little sweater but then on the way back I realized I had skipped two rows completely and had to rip it back. Ugh. Since then I made quite a bit of headway and only had to rip a small section back because I forgot what I was doing halfway through a row. I was doing k1fb and halfway through the row I started knits. Tell me you do that, too.
When I ordered the yarn I really thought it would be a lighter yellow (KnitPicks Swish worsted in cornmeal). It's not quite as dark as it looks in the picture (it was really gray here today, especially this morning when I took the photo), but it is more gold than yellow. And the yoke is very bumpy, even though my stitches are pretty even. I hope it evens out after blocking and isn't a result of the yarn. I wanted something a little less delicate than the Madelintosh, but I can see there will be another one of these in my future knit with the Madelintosh yarn. Maybe blue? It's a fun pattern to knit and relatively easy (though does require actual reading of each line in the pattern. ah hem).
My read is still Those Who Saw Her, a book about Marian apparitions, though I am a bit (just a bit) farther along.
Join Ginny for more reads and knits.
