WIP-tastic Monday

I’m still reeling from all the Rav love on the big-ass shawl. Thanks, everyone!

In between the last few looooong rows of the shawl, I cast on another project. Can you blame me when you have beautiful, shiny yarn like this? This is Tosh Pashmina, silk, merino and cashmere in beautiful bronze Silt Wash. I have 3 skeins of this which I think will not be used up for the cardigan.

Ah yes, my new project is a cardigan. A short sleeved one. It’s called Goodale by my newest favourite designer, Cecily Glowik MacDonald. I am loving this yarn, it’s so pleasant to work with, shiny and smooth and quite springy. Typical with most silk blends I suppose.

This is worked from the top down with a different increase method. Different to me anyway since I have never used it before. Some of the increases look wonky to me but I suppose I can block it out later.

As of last night, this is the state of the cardigan. I’ve split for the sleeves and worked a few repeats of the body. I have 3 more repeats with increases to do, so about 24 rows and then the ribbed hem will start.

I hope to finish this before the next Amiras meet-up next month.

  1. Well, not long before it’s done, then! ;o)
    I really really love this yarn, even though I’ve never seen it IRL – but the description alone makes my hands itch to work with it!


  2. You beat me to this WIP and your version looks great in the Pashmina. I was going to use my sweater shipment Tosh Sport for this design but summer came and… went!!! This is one clever pattern.
