Books,  Knitting

Unraveled Wednesday.

Hello and Happy Almost Thursday!

I am making slow but steady progress on my second Quintessential Cardigan. But – I’m worried I won’t have enough yarn. I have no idea why I just assumed I would, but … I did! After I knit that first sleeve, and was a little into the back – maybe when I joined the 2nd or 3rd ball? – I noticed that I didn’t have a lot of balls left. I weighed the sleeve, weighed all the yarn I had left, looked at my notes from last time and realized I was going to be close. Worst case, I can knit short sleeves – which will mean unraveling the one I already knit – and best case, I’ll be ok.

This morning, I finished the first front and got the scale out again.

On the left are the first sleeve and first front. On the right is the yarn I have left. That yarn needs to knit a second sleeve, a second front and a neckband. I’m cautiously optimistic.

I’ve started the second front and I’ll do the neckband next. Stay tuned!

On the reading front, I just started listening to The Signature of All Things … and when I grabbed that link I saw that a few of y’all didn’t care for it. I’m just two hours in (with 20+ more to go), but so far, I’m enjoying it. We’ll see! (cautiously optimistic again.)

Check out Kat’s to see what everyone else is knitting and reading – hopefully all good stuff!
