The Autumn Leaves cardi, which I’m calling the Spring Autumn Leaves cardi, on account of it being knit in spring and in a lovely light green yarn, is nearing completion. Here’s a photo I took of it before this morning’s knitting session:
Since taking this photo, I added another 8 rows to the bottom and did the six rows of moss stitch that comprise the bottom border. All that remains is to knit the two (short) sleeves and add the buttons. After checking out a bunch of the FO shots of this project on Ravelry, I decided to put buttons only in the yoke section, rather than down the whole front.
I’m working a little OT later tonight and my usual shifts Monday and Tuesday nights, and the sweater is still a couple of knitting sessions away from complete, so it may be Wednesday before the KIP becomes an FO. As usual, I’ll let you know… and provide photographic evidence.
Hope your weekend was productively lazy… or lazily productive… whichever you needed most.
A short review of the new Avengers movie: so much fun! And a hint: stay for the two (!) extra scenes at the end… one about midway through the credits and the other at the very end. You won’t be sorry.
