From Susan — I’m in shock

Filed under: Updates — lv2knit @ 7:17 am

I finished knitting the pieces of the ST cardigan, basted it together, and it fits!!!!!  The sleeves are the perfect length.  The body is the length I wanted.  I am amazed, shocked and speechless — in a good way.  I started sewing the seams last night and I’ll buy buttons on my way home.  It should be done and ready to wear by this weekend (xxxxx — crossed fingers).  I will post a picture of the finished garment.  Chalk up another one for moi!


  1. Gotta love it! Good for you. (How about you celebrate and type up that little cell phone purse pattern… )

    Seriously, can’t wait to see your sweater finished. I think I’m running short on yarn for mine. I finished the back, started the sleeves (both), and am seemingly going to be short. So I stopped working on the sleeves, and started the fronts. I figure I’ll do what you were going to do with the sleeves (3/4 length?) if I truly am short.

    I bought the yarn through Patternworks, and thought I had sufficiently padded my order. Ah well… They’re checking to see if they’ve got anymore in my dye lot in stock. If not — I promise not to cry to much!

    Happy Friday, Rainey Sisters!

  2. Wendy, I sent Sally the pattern by email. Make sure she gets you a copy. Good luck on the yarn shortage problem. I always used to run out of yarn. Now I buy so much extra — I hate running short or even having to think about it. Sometimes I buy up to a third more than it calls for.
