Destination Eyelet Cardi, Day 3

I think I finally have it going. I worked 12 rows of the yoke. Since I’m increasing and will be casting on stitches on day 4, I hope to knit 9 rows. Since I’ll continue to decrease, I’ll probably adjust my goal daily until the yoke is finished.

Detour

Tinking…yes, I tinked a row. I purled when should have knitted. I was in stockinette mode and forgot to flip switch to garter stitch mode. All this means that I didn’t finish the body. That will happen today and then I’ll start the sleeves which go quickly. In the past I’ve knit the sleeves for this sweater in the  round using magic loop or two circulars but I’m going to knit them flat and seam them.  I have another bad case of castonitis. Gate City Yarns had some Liberty Wool Prints that is ideal for Girl Baby Surprise Jackets. The colorway is called Watercolor Rainbow.  Notice I said the shop HAD. My knitting friend and I bought it all up. Now I have charity knitting stash…oops. To cure the castonitis, I went button shopping. Tessa Ann Designs has a set called Springtime that will work very nicely with this yarn. I’ve custom ordered two sets with 2 floral scene buttons and one each of the solid color buttons.

Till next time, no frogs, no tinks, just knits.
