Kerry Cardigan

Hey--a post! After a hectic, insane week at work, I'm back to it. And, there is a really great project on the sticks-- my Blackwater Abbey Knit along, the Kerry Cardigan.

You cast on the stitches for the entire body--so no side seams--and then split at the armpits and work on the front and back separately. The lower part of the sweater has 7.5 inches of honeycombs. These look great, but they damage your hands. It took quite a while to make it through these rows, but they are pretty once finished.

You can see what a large piece of fabric this produces. Once you make it through the honeycombs you add a few rows of garter stitch that divides the honeycombs from the cable section. Then you head on to the cables. Notice the multiple stitch markers? Without these, I would be lost.
