On The Needles


I've finally started the fronts for the Rivel Cardigan. They are so skinny and so I keep checking to be sure I'm not making a mistake. The front bands are quite wide so I'll just keep following the directions. I love that I am doing these V cables and keep showing Ernie and making him say good job. I wish he would stop rolling his eyes when he says it though.

Last night I worked on this for a long time-I'm so slow-and this morning I woke up to achy finger joints.  So out comes the pain relieving cream and I'll smell like my Gramma all day long. Which I rather enjoy but some people think that Eau de BenGay is kind of stinky.

See other great On The Needle projects at Patchwork Times.

Hope your joints are better soon. I have the same problem and always say I'll stop before knitting so long to cause a problem but I never stop in time. Can't wait to see your Rivel finished. Tell your sweet husband to stop rolling his eyes or he won't get anything else knitted by you! :)

You are making great progress. I too have to watch my knitting time but when you get in a rhythm it's hard to stop.

Aaaahhhh... the smell of bengay brings back memories for me, too. We need to do whatever we can to keep the creative process moving. Looking forward to seeing your completed sweater!

I'll say it too Good Job and I'm not rolling my eyes. It's cool enough here to wear sweaters again and my sweater of the same yarn is my favorite.

You're doing a great job. It's gorgeous! The buttonbands will make a huge difference in how it looks.

What a great idea to do both fronts at once. It's going to be a fabulous sweater. Men just don't get it, do they. And I love eau de Ben Gay.

Your cardigan looks great. Your DH should be encouraging you with treats if that is for him. Tell him no more eye rolling. I too am a slow knitter, but haven't had enough experience to suffer from sore hands and fingers from knitting. My soreness comes from hand quilting though. Haven't tried Eau de Ben Gay yet. I'll have to look for it at my local upscale fashion boutique.lol

I like the smell of Ben Gay and it makes me feel better, too.
