M1R, M1L

It's what I've been doing for the past couple of weeks. I started this top down cardigan at the beginning of November and then put it aside so I could get my holiday knitting done. I picked it up again at the beginning of January and got as far as the underarms. It's been on hold for a couple of weeks pending my daughter trying it on for size and fit. And that happened last night. Looks like it's going to be fine.

And this is a shawl I'm making as part of a knit-a-long with the Westknits Ravelry group.

What these two things have in common is the increases, M1L and M1R. I'm getting pretty good at it. The shawl is almost done, a couple of inches to go. The cardigan not so much. The sleeves and body are just beginning.

I really need to think about getting a better camera. These colors are just a hint of what they really are. I tried shooting them this morning in natural light and it was worse. I'm thinking about building a light box but I don't know where I'd store it.

Looks like your bad luck is over! I like Stephens designs, and am planning on knitting some more in the future. Can't wait to see what he's come up with in his second book.

I started a top down cardigan for myself LAST January, and I still have about 6" or so to go on the body, the sleeves, and the button band. I'm slow on big projects, lol. I've got a few things that MUST be done, then I'm going to try and finish my cardigan before summer hits again, lol.
