Yarn Along--repetitive frogging


Joining Ginny at Small Things for her weekly Yarn Along...

I began this cardigan the week before last as another Tiny Tea Leaves.  I had already made one for Gemma in a size for next fall and winter by using worsted instead of dk weight yarn and larger needles.  Looking at it now, I am thinking it won't fit her until autumn/winter of 2012-2013.  So I began another for this summer, to wear mainly at church where the AC is turned up in the summer until everyone has goose-bumps and blue lips (they say it is because the humidity makes the doors on the confessionals stick shut...hm!).  Anyway, I began over twice because of slight errors that nagged me, and then last week I realized, nearly done with the first ball of yarn, that I was again using worsted yarn and a size 2T pattern.  Rather than end up with another too-larger cardigan, I frogged it.  I am now using this seamless cardigan pattern which worked so well for me before.  I am using needles a size up from last time, hoping to get something a bit larger than the last one, which fit her perfectly at 18 months.

As for reading, I am still on The Invisible World, much to my shame.  It is such easy reading I ought to have been long done with it, but what with knitting, trying to paint up a couple of peg doll families for Gemma and the Etsy shop and trying to get the house in order for Gabe's first Holy Communion party this weekend, I haven't been reading at all.

Now hop over to Small Things and see what everyone is knitting and reading!
