Mini Cardi from the stash!
Originally uploaded by The Prolific Knitter
I'm really enjoying knitting my Mini Cardi, in Jo Sharp Silk Road Aran. my gauge was a little large, but I did the math and am knitting the smallest size, to have it even itself out at 37-38". (which is the perfect size!)
I'm knitting mine all in one piece up to the armpit, which I am at now, so it's time to divide for the fronts and back. I expect this will be a quick knit due to the bulkier gauge. I generally knit sweaters in dk weight... these size 7s feel huge!
I have a good reason to hurry, I have the Malabrigo coming to knit the Placed Cables sweater from the same issue. I want to have a slew of new sweaters for fall! (I thought it was nice how you have a line of matching stitches where the fronts meet the back, so it looks like there's a seam, when there really isn't! Too cool!)
