Even though I am still slowly knitting my way through the not-so-elaborate cabled sweater, it was too bulky to take with me on a carry-on to the beach. So I started a new project, also very popular in the knitting world–a short sleeve cardigan from a free pattern here.
I’m using the yarn I got in the fall to make a different sweater that I just got too bored with (it was a spring color anyway). So I unraveled what I had done and started again and got about six inches of the new pattern knit over the weekend.
Ultimately, it will look something like this:
Yep, it’s Shalom. I haven’t made any more progress on this since the vacation, though.
Is that Shalom? I think I’m exactly at the same place where you are in the top picture.
Great crafty minds think alike!
I had just downloaded this pattern last week. We are so in sync.
