I last posted about the Emily cardigan I am knitting for my MIL almost 6 months ago! As with most sweaters I knit, it stalled when seaming became necessary. I am happy to be over the hump. The back and front pieces are joined and I have picked up stitches to knit the sleeves top-down and in the round so that seaming won't be a hang-up again.
|Yay! Only stockinette sleeves, and a collar left to knit.|
But this hat jumped the queue, as it is a gift for a friend whose birthday is this coming Friday. Here is just a peek:
I would have been even further along on it last night, but my stranded knitting skills were not improved by a glass of wine and an Netflix episode of Dexter! After ripping out two mistakes, I went to bed. I'll save the big reveal for Friday when it's finished. I promise if you come back to see the FO you will agree that it's a funny gift for someone with an irreverent sense of humor.
