Cardi Knitters Unite

If you haven't already seen it, the new Vogue Knitting is a beaut. There are pages after pages of fabulous cardigans. The kind that make me go all warm inside. I've made some serious progress on a cardi of my own. The February Lady Sweater is a joy to knit. The Cascade 220 is a tad rough but think it will do well in a nice, soapy bath. It's longer now than in the photo. I always get nervous when I know I'm nearing the end. I'm never sure if I've made it too long or too short. I try it on but my heart still does a flutter when I'm binding off. All is moving along with the new home. I'm not so far as painting but I did install my very first door knob. I'm quite the handywoman you know. Although I'm told I still need to work on my laundry skills. All in good time.February Lady Sweater

Ooh! Your FLS is looking lovely. I'm about to knit one for the Ravelympics and I cannot wait to get started on it! Can't wait to see yours all finished.

Your cardi is looking divine. I agree, this issue of VK is really fantastic. What to knit first??

I just got back from holidays, and the first thing I'm going to do (after showering of course...camping for a week/no shower...not a good combination) is run out and get the new VK. I sure hope there is one left on the newstand. Can't wait to see the finished FL Sweater!
