Patience, Thy Name is Kerry
I'm making very slow progress on the Kerry Cardigan sweater. First it took several swatches to get gauge and I could only get gauge using brand new Clover circs. Since the Clovers are new and still "unseasoned" and this yarn is rather sticky, the honeycomb pattern was painfully slow.
For the size I'm making, I had to cast on 205 stitches, rib 3 rows, increase to 322 stitches, work chart, decrease to 209 stitches, work 5 rows of garter stitch, set up and increase back to a set up row of 245 stitches and that's just the first seven inches! Are all Aran patterns like this?? No wonder I love making socks. AND I found an error because the combo of stitches and charts adds up to 241 stitches, not 245. Clever girl that I am, it only took 2 hours to figure that one out. (and, pssst, I'm not even sure I'm reading the charts correctly) and then another hour to figure out that the error was ME cutting off part of the chart.
Luckily for me, LCK is way ahead of me so I can pester her with questions.
I'm also trying to hold off on new socks for me until I finish my Dad's socks.
