Sometimes you toss a project onto the heap that deserves to be there and sometimes you are hasty. I think I tossed my EZ Green Cardigan a little too soon. A couple of my knitting peeps are taking a class and making this sweater. I stumbled upon mine yesterday and thought, “Hmmm. It’s not so bad.” Can this sweater be saved??
I started this project so motivated and excited to be knitting this vintage homage to Elizabeth Zimmermann. All I have left to do are the sleeves and the final finishing. I think I’ll give it a go. The sleeves are stockinette in the round — mindless TV knitting.
My Eala Bhan is not forsaken! I am past the armhole shaping and speeding along on the back. “Speeding along” of course is a relative term!!
To Connie: I think Yvonne is teaching the class at Amazing Threads. I’m not taking he class, though — just revisiting the project!
To Nancy: The “basting” thread you see is actually there to mark the foldline of the center front and the pick up line for sts around the armhole. The sweater is knit in the round with steeks even though it is one color, so there are extra sts at the edges — when you knit flat you would just pick up sts with a one-stitch selvedge so a thread would not be needed.
