Josh Bennett West Village Cardigan

Have dusted off the needles after a prolonged hiatus and have just finished a cardi by Josh Bennett from Rowan website. Left out intarsia-seemed a bit youngish for me.

New Sweater

Just finished a sweater for my friend, Miguel. It is a cardigan that was knit in the round with 9 steek stitches that I simply cut open without securing. Because it is Jamieson and Smith Shetland wool, I do this without worrying. I used 3.25mm needles and the colour is "mustard" (the third picture is closest to the real colour).

Some plain toe-ups

The fiddler in our oldtime group likes to wear as many colors as possible, so when I saw this yarn I decided she should have a pair of socks knit from it. So now she does. :)

Gloves

I read a couple of articles (one of them was from an old "Threads" magazine that I have had for ages) on how to construct gloves and gave them a shot. I used Patons sock yarn and 2.75mm needles. They are nice and warm and for the most part fit nicely. However, on my next pair I will make the little finger first and then knit another half inch before making the other three fingers.
