Sweaters x 2 …

…take longer to do.

2 little cardigans in progress

Sweaters! Sorry about the photo. Its cloudy today. Cloudy, and foggy, and dim, which it has been for the last week (when it wasn’t raining) and is predicted to remain for the next week. It’s been nice and cool, usually in the 60s, which makes working on little sweaters a pleasant pastime.

First up we have the nearly-finished cardigan:

Everything but the buttons!

It just needs buttons and end-weaving to finish. I’m a bit grumpy because I couldn’t find the buttons I wanted, but I’ve got some I think will do. We’ll see. As you can see, I’m saving all the finishing until I’ve finished the knitting on the second one:

These needles are too short.

I really, really need to use longer needles for these… still. All I have left on it is the body (the easiest part!) and then I get to weave in all the ends, and sew on the buttons, and they’ll be finished!

I really need to get stuff finished, too, because I’ve got a rapidly expanding list of things I want to make over the next few months.

    Very nice sweaters – Do you have a paper chain for the count-down? Make sure you make some exciting things for the boys to wear – boy clothes can be so bland! :X
