I cast on a hitofude cardigan. It is a genius pattern. It is knit in one piece usinh a single strand of yarn. Meaning you start knitting and keep on without any seaming or even adding new yarn. The lace is so much fun. It is simple enough to be easily memorized but interesting enough to keep you engaged. I am using Knitpicks stroll fingering. It is not a fancy yarn but it is robust and great value for money. I dream of the day I can buy a sweater quantity amount of luxury yarn but until then I am happy with knitpicks. I thought about the color for quite a while. I finally settled on grey because I figured I would get more wear out of it. I am already considering making another one in a bright color.
I am also working on my daughter's halloween costume. She wants to be Wanda of where is Waldo? So I am knitting striped leg warmers and I have already finished her hat. I also have some striped red and white fabric to make a shirt for her. I really wanted to find t shirt fabric but all I could find was a heavier weight cotton. So I am still thinking I should make it into a dress or a tunic.
