WIP update

I've gotten some good knitting time in during the past week. It's only in the 50's here today in Baltimore, so I could be wearing Arisaig or the Grannie Smith Cardi if either of them were finished. Here's how it's going with them.

Back of Arisaig

When I started Arisaig, it was my first project using yarn that got a gauge of 28 sts/4". I was afraid this was going take forever. While it took a while to get going, the pattern repeat wasn't too hard to memorize and I am over halfway through the right front also. I hope to have this one done by the end of the month (maybe...).

Grannie Smith Cardi

This one I just started last week. I decided to cast on the fronts and back together to avoid some seaming, not sure if this is going to make it harder to sew in the sleeves or not? Ever since I made my first top-down sweater, I try to avoid sewing at all costs!

I'll have some pics of the Christmas hats next week. I've got 2 down, 8 to go...


  1. Arisaig looks great! I really liked that when I first saw it but it just hasn't made it to the top of my "to knit" list yet.

  2. I love the color of your Grannie Smith! I'm really into the pale-sage colors these days for some reason...

  3. HI, I was just wondering what pattern you used for hat #3? It looks terrific, and looks quite simple, if you could let me know, that would be super! Thanks, Love your blog, the background is terrific!!
