victory over double garter stitch.

First of all, this is how I felt yesterday. The head cold symptoms disappeared, but were replaced by a low grade fever and general aches, pains, and tiredness. So I focused on manageable tasks, and finished enough that I could justify curling up on the couch next to this dog.

And then I finished the double garter stitch edging on the other side. This edging really helps to add a bit of structure to the shape, and I’m feeling pretty good about the fit now that I’m this far along.

I think my Kerrera is going to be exactly the right length. (In this shot, I’m holding up one of the pockets so you can see what it looks like without the drooping that the seaming should fix.) I’m feeling much better today: still a bit tired, but I’ve got a lot more energy right now than I did last night at almost eight o’clock. This is a very good thing, because I’m hosting my reading group tonight. They’ll be here in fifteen minutes!

  1. I’m intrigued by the concept of double garter stitch! The cardigan’s looking awesome, and the length looks just right.

    With my stupid cold I’ve been drinking lots of tea, resting, and knitting, though I know I’ll be paying the piper with some writing and editing deadlines looming overhead.

    That photo of Boh is just precious.

  2. Your house looks so cozy! I hope the cold has disappeared … and you’re enjoying lots of Kerrera wearing. Happy Sunday to you and Boh!
