Well I am a little way in to my cardigan now and thought I'd reveal which pattern I chose. Initially I was tossing up between either the rocky coast or the abigail but decided on starting with the atelier. As luck would have it, before ordering the yarn, I found an almost identical cardigan to the rocky coast at the op shop for $3 and after reading comments on Ravelry about the abigail cardi was a little intimidated to start that so the atelier it was.
I tend to get a little frustrated when it comes to choosing yarn, especially if I am buying it online. Too many colours and varieties to choose from or not enough colours in a specific variety or never enough balls in the colour I want. After much deliberation I ended up selecting a bamboo/wool blend in a soft shade of grey from Bendigo Woollen Mills. It is gorgeous to knit with and despite the limited colour palette I will definitely use it again.
Progress has been slow but steady and I figure if I dedicate a little knitting time each evening this will be well and truly finished in time for my trip home.
What projects are you currently working on?
