Wednesday’s Progress Check 2

Happy, Happy Wednesday!

On the Needles . . . is the Iced cardigan and a new dishcloth.

Last week I was on a Finish-or-Frog hunt and found a large bag of brown yarn and a few inches of a sweater.  No needles.  No pattern or notes.  Just crumpled up yarn.  Finishing wasn’t an option, so I frogged, rewound the yarn and cast on a new cardigan.  “Iced” seemed appropriate since we’re in the middle of this deep freeze.  The yarn is Patons Shetland Chunky Tweeds, an acrylic/wool/rayon blend.  I’m half-way through the waist decreases.  Chunky yarn and size 10.5 needles make knitting fly.

That gorgeous burst of color in the picture is the first in a set of Waffle Knit Dishcloths that will be added to the gift box.  Sugar ‘n Cream cotton in the mango madness colorway.  Love the colors!

On the Bookshelf . . . Still reading How to Marry an English Lord.

How are your projects coming along?

Enjoy your Wednesday and stay warm friends.

  1. Great pattern, Janet, and what an appropriate name for a winter project. The weather sure has been crazy this year. Love that dish cloth, too. Fun colors, so cheery! I just switched to better needles on one of my projects and am hoping they will help! Am trying the Downton Abbey knit along but it’s been a very bumpy road.


  2. love the finish or frog theme, glad you are going through and rediscovering old projects. I do not save old projects they are finished or frogged immediately. Love the brightly colored dishcloth!


    1. I wish I could make a more timely decision on projects. I’m always hopeful that the problem, whatever it is, will go away or look better after a little time-out.


  3. Q – WOW! Those projects together make quite the color contrast! I am awake now after seeing the dish cloth. Love it! I actually just found a doll sweater I started knitting years ago. Have no idea what/where the pattern is.
