Do you remember this cardigan?
This is my version of the Leitmotif Cardigan. This pattern was published in the Fall 2010 issue of Interweave Knits.Â Just after I sent their version off I started this one for myself in Cascade Eco+. Â Â I made good progress for a little while and got the first half of the back done that summer.Â Then work caught up with me and there was no time for selfish knitting so it sat for several months…..I picked it up again later that winter and got the second side finished.Â And then it sat…for a whole year!Â Last September I picked it up again and put it in the car.Â I intended it to be my ‘waiting in the car project’.Â That didn’t work out too well, I managed a sleeve cap and perhaps 2-3 inches of the sleeve. So, I’m almost at the end of my deadline knitting and we’ve had another cold snap.Â I’m really mad at myself that I don’t have this cardigan to wear so I started back on it yesterday and finished the sleeve.Â This morning I did the second sleeve cap and hopefully I’ll have the sleeve finished tonight so that I’ll have a cardigan to wear tomorrow before it gets warm again!Â See that pretty shawl pin, great and useful gift from my Knitmas Gift exchange.
Please tell me that I’m not the only one who lets non-deadline knitting languish for 18 months?Â I never finish deadline knitting late but when it’s for yourself then no one is going to come screaming at you!
