Green Cardi – Update

I had the goal of finishing my green cardi a few weekends ago and well, let’s just say it didn’t happen. Now, not to say I didn’t make progress, because I did. I finished knitting all the pieces. The problem is, they stayed that way. I was nervous about the blocking. My apartment is small and I simply couldn’t figure out where they’d go, all five pieces, while drying. I talked with an experienced sweater knitter and she said, “sew it up, wash it, and lay it out to dry.” So simple. Why didn’t I think of that??

So, I’m nearly done sewing it together. I just have the last sleeve and side seam to sew up. Then put on the button and neck bands, put on a few buttons, and it’s done! It’ll be done this weekend for sure!
