Gnarled Oak

Sometimes it takes considerable longer to blog about knits than it takes to actually knit them. Take this cardigan for instance.

I knitted it in less than a month (Jan 3 to Jan 31). Then it (or I) waited for a few weeks for the right buttons to come along. Add another month for the photos, and as all knitters know, you can’t wear it until it’s been photographed. And one more month to wind up on the blog. Procrastination to the max!

The original pattern is more A-lined but I like a fitted waist better. And, to tell you the truth, I had to add waist-shaping to make something happen, otherwise I would’ve gone mad. It’s a lovely design but very mindless to knit until you get to the yoke. And then it’s 20 rows of awesome cabling and, boom, done.
