Back to 2009

I am returning to a sweater that I started in August of 2009, made good progress, and then put away in early September 2009.  It is Solveig Hisdal’s Brocade Leaves Cardigan.  If you are new to reading my blog, you will not remember this sweater.  I am not sure why I put this away, it was not like I was mad at it or anything.  And I love the colors and the design.  I think that I was just having knitting ADHD—there were some new socks that I saw on Ravelry, and I also had just purchase Grace Anna Farrow’s then new book The Fine Line, and was distracted by that; and mittens and lap blankets.  You get the picture.

So, I am back to finishing up the first sleeve, the body is part-way done, and the cuff of the second sleeve is completed also.  I am waiting to see if I have enough yarn to make the body longer.  The colors are gorgeous to work with on these dreary January days.
