    Procrastinate much?

    Posted by twit2knit on August 4, 2011

    I’ve been working on a seemless cardigan called Gaia by Kristen TenDyke, it’s a very quick knit and the pattern is well written. For some reason I’ve been putting off doing the button bands, yes that’s all I’ve left to do, oh and the weaving in and sewing on buttons and blocking but almost all the actual knitting is done.

    I thought if I posted here about it, it may actually spur me on to complete this cardigan, one can only hope that is the case.

    I’ve used Robin Aran with wool in colour graphite and size 5mm(US8) needles.


    Seen how I was procrastinating with Gaia, I decided to cast on for a pattern that’s been in my queue for an age.  Angela Sixian Wu’s Three Tams, I did tam A. I used Robin DK and King Cole Baby Comfort DK, with 3.5mm(US4) and 4mm(US6) needles. Now this was a real quick knit and so satisfying, looks way more complicated than it is. The only snag was the pattern omitted a detail about the decreases, before starting each decrease round, move the last completed stitch from the previous round back to the left needle. The moved stitch becomes the 1st stitch of the decrease round. Jennichrys on Ravelry, thank you for the explanation.
