Hmmm... I guess I haven't been blogging in a while.  I have been a little bit preoccupied as of late - I had a Canadian friend come visit for the past week and a half.  It was so much fun!

I started this a few days before The Canadian flew in and worked on it a bit while he was here.

It's based on Elizabeth Zimmermann's Saddle-Shoulder Aran Cardigan, with many modifications of course.  I had posted about my swatch and charts months ago, but just now got around to actually knitting on it.  I kept tweaking my plans with miniscule details and finally told myself that I just needed to start knitting.  I now have a good 6 or 7 inches of the body and I'm very happy with the way it's turning out.

I have also finished my stranded mittens, but they're all the way at home so I can't take a picture of them just yet.  Did I mention that I am spending the next week and a half in San Diego?!  I flew in two days ago.  More about that in my next post.  :)


  1. That looks great! Without anything to compare it to, it also looks super small. LOL

  2. How exciting! It looks great so far.
