Unraveled Wednesday: Arctic Intentions

After another long post yesterday, I’ll just say a very quick hello and share what I’m working on this work, linking up with As Kat Knit’s Unraveled Wednesday:

My Arctic Cardigan for the first quarter of the Good Intentions club is coming along nicely. I’ve joined in my second ball of Quarry and am just about to the point of separating out the sleeves — the joys of bulky yarn!  I am a smidge worried about my gauge. The fabric feels the teensiest bit stiff, but my gauge swatch loosened after blocking, so I’m going to trust in that and carry on.  I’ll give give the yoke a quick measure to see if I need to do a little tinkering to get it to the right depth before I separate or the sleeves.  If I get really concerned, I’ll give it a quick block and check things out!

I’ve got a case of the sniffles come on and have spent the morning trying to carry on with my work — but I might take the afternoon as a “duvet day” (I’ve just learned this brilliant phrase) to rest, and spend a little quality time with my cardigan.

I’d love to hear what you’re working on this week in the comments!

  1. The cardigan pattern looks lovely,hope sizing works out well, duvet day is good especially if you are feeling under the weather. I am busy with Christmas present knitting and Autumn scene toadstools for variety.

  2. Oh no! I hope you feel better soon. I love that term 🙂 I took sick days last Monday and Tuesday due to a severe cold. Lots of chicken soup, hot tea and rest will do you good. That cardigan is coming along quickly. You’ll be done with it in no time!

    1. Thanks, Paula, I’m feeling mostly better although I think I overdid it a bit, so it’s lingered some. I hope you’re feeling 100% better now! I’m so enjoying knitting in bulky yarn — such fast progress (even though I ended up ripping back and reknitting part of the yoke, blergh!)
