Making progress

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!

  1. 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.
