But no! Nothing! Today I realised that I hadn't even saved a title, let alone a draft, let alone published!! And actually, I enjoyed making it. And also, I've worn it loads and received lots of compliments. And I even bought a new camera last month and this was one of the first projects I took pictures of. And I still forgot to write the post!!
So, long overdue, and with more pride than I seem prepared to admit to myself, here is my stripey knitted cardigan.
I really enjoyed making it. Creating a random design of stripes and then following it for each piece appealed to me, and made the process seem much faster. The only downside was stitching in all those ends! I thought I was doing quite well by passing the yarns up the sides of the pieces until I was ready to use each colour again. But I still ended up with a lot of loose ends when I needed to shape the tops of sleeves, armholes and neck.
I have since learned that there is another technique of knitting the ends in as you go. Oh that would have been useful to know!
I did use some odds and ends, but mostly I was using a selection of random but complete balls of yarn that I had bought. The buttons were from my stash - so those were the only true "stash-busting" elements of this project.
I enjoyed making it and I enjoy wearing it. Most of all, because of the range of colours, it goes with just about anything. Result!
