Knitting progress

December 5, 2010

After it sat languishing for 5 months needing only buttons and sewn undersarms, I finally finished up Tea’s humpbacked-elephant cardigan.

He enjoyed modeling it for me.  It looks nice on him although it’s a bit big – that’s great because let’s be real – I won’t be finishing another one for him anytime soon.  (Ravelry link here.)

Tea picks all his own poses - I swear.

I’m feeling the crunch to knit the complementary elephant cardigan for Pea.  It’s a different pattern entirely, but uses the same colors and also will have elephants on it.  It’d be nice if the boys could wear them in the same winter since they sort of go together (although they don’t exactly match).

I started it last summer and it has since become tangled into the straps of my knitting bag and with itself.

I recall having made a mistake in the color chart of last row I knit, so instead of trying to sort the mess out, I unraveled the whole thing and am starting again.  My goal is to finish by the end of January.  If I don’t specify which January, then technically, I will succeed.

    Oh my goodness. Cuteness overload!! I love what a model Tea is. Can he please rub some of the modeling enthusiasm off on Pia? Great job on the sweater. I am seriously envious of your knitting fearlessness.

    o.k. — now I guess I need to get out the sweater I started for Tea (um — a year ago?) Not to mention Cricket’s quilt. You’re much busier than I am — but I also think you might be able to blame me for your procrastination gene.
