I [heart] Chunky Yarn
I forgot how fun and fast knitting with chunky yarn is. I finished the body of the Best Friend Cardigan last night. I actually had finished this two nights ago, but ripped out the first attempt because the gauge seemed off even though my swatch was right on. It turns out that I was knitting too many rows between turning the cables. The sleeves are supposed to be knit up in reverse stockinette stitch, but I may try something different, like garter stitch, instead. I really like the subtle shaping at the waist. I'll have to look for some good buttons this weekend.
