Minimalist Progress


After becoming completely besotted with Ravelry a few weeks back, knitting productivity slowed to a crawl around here. Hopes of finishing my Minimalist Cardigan in record time were dashed as I happily uploaded projects, found friends and joined groups.

But even I can only scroll through fellow knitters' projects for so long before my fingers begin to twitch and I find myself reaching for my own knitting basket.

I finished up the back and started the right front; it is almost to the armhole shaping. It's a pleasure to have that little stretch of stockinette to break up the miles of moss stitch.

But those miles of moss stitch look so good, and I really like your color choice of yarn.

It's amazing how that place can be such an inspiration and time sucker upper at the same time.

It's looking really lovely.
The Ravelry time suck eases once you get yourself set up.

Looking good! Love the color with that stitch, so...mossy!

It's beautiful! Nice pictures. Is the stockinette the button band?

Oh boy - that's going to be gorgeous!! I have 1.5 sweaters to finish before I can even think of starting that for myself.....but I shall look forward to seeing your completed one!

You are right about the stockinette stitch band. :) Did you ever think you would say that about stockinette? Enjoy.

Are you "Knitting Weather" on Ravelry? I'll look you up. I'd love to see your projects. I think you're a great knitter.

I'm thinking of making this in a sportweight yarn, too. Do you think it will take more yarn than the pattern calls for in that weight? I don't know how much to order. Yours is looking great so far.
