After a good start, I left it until this weekend to start a summer cardigan and finish my cardigan with the cabled front band. But I have done a complete pattern repeat and there are no mistakes in the pattern or anything and when you get into it, you can 'read' your knitting which makes it easier. I'm hoping to be somewhere near finished by next month, ready to start the next 2 knit-a-longs.

Knit knit knit. Can you see the smoke coming off my needles? Laughing


Well that makes me feel better...by the time you finish your other two KALs, I should be through with the Bird's Nest... Wink

Well, I'm embarrassed to admit that I've finished it already Embarassed It just sort of happened. I found it a very enjoyable knit so I just kept going. It's blocking on a bucket now. I'll post pics soon.

Here it is. It covers the gap at the back of the neck nicely. I'll be nice and warm when the March winds blow. Very Happy

It's not a very difficult knit at all but if I did it again, I would use 4 ply/fingering as specified instead of the DK I used. It would be nicer if it looked more delicate.

I think I'm beginning to prefer more delicate looking knits.

Yvonne - thats really pretty - well done for finishing!

I agree about the delicate knits - they do look so nice - just a bit wearing on the hands though I find.
