On The Needles

Off the needles this week are the fronts for the Rivel Cardigan! 
This proves what a slow knitter I am.
I thought it would take just a little bit to get these finished,
it took 2 evenings of about 2 hours each night.
The cables take me so long.
I am done with cables for a while.

Wednesday night I cast on for the sleeves,
knit a few rows then went to bed.
Last night I started the body of the sleeve.
With these being short sleeves, 
I'm hoping to show you the front band progress next week.
Again, wish me luck.

I spent the weekend with 4 Grandkiddos 
and needed to take something to work on.

I wanted to mark the second skein with where I started on the first,
I pulled and pulled and pulled and still have not found this section.
I guess if I don't find it soon (before I forget what it is),
I'll just unwind it and start at the beginning and have fun, unmatched socks.
The coloring reminds me of Easter eggs.

See other great On The Needles projects at Patchwork Times.
I love Judy L's sweater!

The fronts of your sweater are really pretty. I like the quilt they are being displayed on, also! :D
Your sock yarn does look like Easter. I am so ready for warmer weather!

Love the cardigan!! I have also had problems with that brand of sock yarn being difficult to find the matching place to start... and I am Type A when it comes to this... I really want my socks to match!

Happy knitting! Can't wait to see how this cardigan comes together!
