Waiting...

The thick and thin cardigan has been on hold for about a week. I knit all I had of the Debbie Bliss Soho. Before I finished the last ball, I went back and lengthened each arm...and then went back to the body. I did shaped the waist slightly...and now...



Here we wait. (Got my hair done today...finally, since Christmas! I am feeling human again....but look at the big white arm...I need some SUN...where or where is spring???)

I went to the LYS to find something to finish the ribbing off around the collar, 1/2 sleeves and body...but found nothing. I am really struggling with what colour.
I don't want a big band of the light beige around me so I was thinking brown or navy. I couldn't find the right brown...or navy for that matter....so I ordered some navy cascade 220 online. Who knows if it will be right. I would rather keep it monochromatic...and I have yet to use this yarn...so hopefully it will all work out.
I was knitting away on the front of Demi and something went wrong. I dropped down and knit back up a bunch of stitches...but no...I don't know...there will have to be some major ripping here. Oh well...that'll teach me to knit charts while trying to watch TV.
So, lesson learned, I started knitting a TV watching project....

Thanks so much for your comments on the Puff Sleeved Cardigan. I love it!
