If I had a dollar for every cardigan I currently have on the needles, I'd have like 4... no... 5 1/2 dollars. Yeah, it may not seem like much but heck it's 1/3 the cost of the new Interweave Holiday Knits magazine that I had to buy today in order to keep my IK collection complete and my psyche balanced. (I'm still trying to process and justify my purchase so bear with me.)
Let's see... I have a Debbie Bliss cabled cardigan that I started an eternity ago, a Kim Hargreaves Boyfriend Sweater, a February Lady Sweater (of course because doesn't everyone?), a Noro short sleeved cardigan, and a lacy summer number that I'm not even thinking about. The 1/2 is a vest that I started last winter.
Disclaimer: This is no way a complete count of my WIPs... just the cardigans... and the ones I can remember.
The cardigans are starting to feel like debt that needs to be managed... but since I'm not very good at dealing with real debt, I'm not fairing much better here. Common sense would really dictate that I pick up the cotton Boyfriend Cardi and work on that during this dry heatwave, but common sense rarely dictates my knitting so I am working on the February Lady Sweater with some Dream In Color.
The yarn is bugging me a bit (probably due to the void of any moisture in the air) but the colors are stunning. It's a very dark blue with variations of purple and such.
I'm also quite the fan of this new style of cardigan as it eliminates worries about expanding waistlines. Not that I have an issue... just saying. I'm especially looking forward to finishing this one so I can add it to my pile of wool sweaters that it's never cool enough to wear. Sigh.
