Yarny Goodness!

Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

Ribbi Cardi (v. 2)

Posted by Amber on May 21, 2007

Have I mentioned how much I love summer vacation? (For those of you who didn’t hear the shouts of glee, classes finished, grades were well enough, and all is well with the world.) Anyway, with all my newfound free time, I’ve been working away on my new Ribbi:

I’m reworking it to be seamless, and doing the arms with intarsia. The intarsia was tricky at first, but I’ve got the hang of it now (although, I still wish it was smaller blocks so that I could use small bobbins, rather than the entire skein!) I’m about halfway through the raglan decreases, but my hands have decided there’s no more knitting today. But I’ll probably finish the knitting sometime midweek, and the finishing possibly over the long weekend!

    Cardi looks great! I can’t wait for summer vacation… 11 more days with kids, but who’s counting?

    Nice job!! Are you planning to come to knitting tomorrow night? It looks like you are going to beat me with Ribby number 2. :) My mother is almost done with hers. She just has to do the zipper.
