I have been working away at the Vodka Lemonade cardigan; you can see it is starting to take shape:
It is such a lovely pattern and has a cute vintage feel to it. The details are beautiful and it is fun to knit. I am now getting close to where I can separate the sleeves and the rows are very long – nearly 400 stitches on the needles. It makes good TV knitting.
I am also very nearly finished with Hatcher. I sewed in the sleeves and they are perfect. All that remains is to add the ribbing at the neckline and to give it a bath and a light block. Here is a teaser photo, but next week I hope to bring you some modelled shots.
Doesn’t it look great? I really love this one.
That’s all for now. I’m headed back to my book, some knitting, and a pile of freshly baked blueberry scones! Keep well!
Oh my gosh – both your projects are looking just great! Both very summery 🙂
I may even get them both done before the summer is over!
You can do it!
Lovely! How’s the shoulder?
Hi Susan, thanks for asking. The physio is definitely helping. My doctor has ordered an x-ray but this may take some time due to the pandemic.
Both look wonderful. I can smell the scones from here. I am tempted to make a batch myself.
Scones are so easy, they practically make themselves. I highly recommend them.
Blueberry scones? That’s an awesome idea. Your Vodka Lemonade looks great. I knit one several years ago (my how time flies) and I love it, but it falls off my shoulders if I leave it unpinned. So look for a pin to match your sweater if you have similar issues with some raglans. I know it might be my shoulders and not the design.
Hi Meredith, thanks for letting me know. I think it is the design, and not you. Looking at the project photos on Ravelry, this seems to be a fairly consistent problem. I plan to sew in a ribbon to try to keep it under control. I will discuss this in a future blog post on the project.
