Still working on my Cable and Lace Cardi. I was sick for about a week and nothing much got done, but I am back at it now.

I messed up on one front and was not crossing the cable on the side of the right front. I didn't even notice that I had not done it until about the 4th repeat. So I had knit almost 50 rows of pattern before I noticed it. So I had to frog back about 40 rows to fix my mistake. I waffled on whether to just take out the 6 stitches of cable or frog the whole front. I decided to do the cable stitches first and see if I could get them back in ok. If that didn't work then it would be frog the entire piece. Well, the knitting fates were with me as I was able to frog 6 stitches back 40 rows and then get them reknit and it looks like I never messed up in the first place. I was going to take a pic of the stitches all raveled out but I was afraid to move out of my chair to go do it. I didn't want to make an even bigger mess.

OK. I give up. I can't post a small picture to save myself. I was told to use the thumbnail option but I do not have that ooption anymore. I tried resizing it but it just would not save it that way. I guess I will just have to post the pics on my blog and send you guys there if you want to see them.
You can see in the top photo over by the yellow and red thingy that the cable is not crossed and in the bottom photo that it is now after ripping back just the 6 stitches and redoing them.

The wonky stitches are where I started out the row and am hoping they will even out with a good blocking. If not I will persuade them into the side seam when I sew the cardi up.

Have gotten to the point on the fronts where I am doing the decreases for the arm holes and also for the v-neck. So far it is going smoothly. I have hopes of finishing by the 18th of this month.

Also, I think I am going to have enough yarn left to do another sweater. So far I have used 5 balls of the yarn and I only have the sleeves left to do plus a a bit on the fronts. Since I had 20 to start with and I have done the back which takes the most, I have hope. The yarn is so soft that I wouldn't mind having two of the same color. Different pattern and it will be fine. Keeping my fingers crossed. Smile

I would guess that I am abut half way done with the sleeves. So I really don't see this being done to wear Saturday. Oh, well.Sad

I must have miscounted on the balls of yarn as I have now opened 12 but this is probably the last I will have to open. So 7 left. Not sure about another sweater out of them and the yarn is discontinued so I can't get any more. A nice soft shawl? Maybe.

The sleeves are about where they were the last time I posted. No time to do anything on them. Was getting ready for our Commandery Inspection for Saturday and yesterday after I got home from church I just sort of crashed in my chair. Did no knitting at all.

I'll work on it this evening probably. I still really want to get it done.

We are going to DC for Easter so would like to have it done to take with me. That should be very doable. I still have about a month to do it and there is really very little to still do.

The cardi got shoved aside this past weekend. I was knitting fingerless mitts for a couple of my favorite little girls. One pair finished and the second is very nearly done. I think I'll work on the cardi sleeves this evening. They are so near to done. Then it is just the sewing up process.

The sewing up bit is the 'not so nice' bit Smile

You're getting there. Perhaps a shrug/ bolero with the rest of the yarn. I got way too much for the shawl because of the discrepancies in the pattern but I'll buy it back from my friend/customer and put it with another yarn and do
Paulie . At least that's the current plan.

Love the Paulie. I have the perfect yarn for that other than it is not a fingering weight. I'll look at the conversion possibilities. Hmmmm.
I'm too danged short for a bolero (only 5'1")
