I’ve officially given up on the retro knit sweater I was making for L and frogged it a couple of weeks ago. Maybe someday when I have the patience for colourwork with such fine yarn, I’ll revisit the pattern again as I really love the resulting sweater so much, but not right now.
Instead, I’ve cast on a sweet little cardi for L using the frogged yarn in the plum colourway. The pattern is also from Vintage Baby Knits by Kristen Rengren (preview of the book here).
I rarely do lace knitting but this little piece has got me a little hooked. I love the repeated pattern and the resulting textures. I also love the subtle colour changes in this yarn by Tanis Fiber Arts. Now I’m looking at all kinds of lace scarfs and shawls and summer cardis for a future project. What fun!
Have you ever had a project that you started with enthusiasm only to change course and start again with something fresh?
