Anyway, this simple cardigan was knit in little bursts, and it kind of shows. I wanted a simple, everyday sort of sweater, and in that respect it pretty much works. The sleeves are a tad on the snug side, but I think that’s because my gauge changed over the course of the cardigan. Yup, I began knitting more tightly. Maybe I was feeling more uptight. Do you all share that theory? That how tightly one knits is a reflection of one’s personality? For instance, my mother? Super loose knitter, and yes, she is a pretty laidback chica.
The pattern is one I made up using my Knitware software. I used the KnitPicks superwash wool, which is actually very nice and soft. I think superwash is my wool of choice, especially after accidentally shrinking an all-wool handknit sweater in the wash last year!
