After a truly awful day, I have something positive to share.
I finished my first knit garment. My Schoodic Cardigan is completed, but for blocking.
It fits. I love the color - which is the result of my dyeing. I love the yarn - a DK yarn that I call Rhythm. I can't wait to wear it when it isn't 70 degrees (what happened to spring?)
I will block it soon and hopefully solve my one gripe about the sweater - it rolls. The sweater is open with no buttons or zippers. The I-cord alongside the cabling rolls outward and I'm looking to solve it. I plan on asking my knitting guru, Georgia of Hearthstone Knits, for suggestions.
For now, I keep petting it and and admiring my first knit sweater. I have so many more in my future.
