I'm also knitting...

My Ratana cardigan continues to grow.
 The lace sleeves were a giant pain but the ribbing is going quickly in this thick aran-weight yarn.

I have decided to make a slightly shorter cardigan as I like the higher-hip length on me.

If you are curious, the safety pins are an easy way to count rows.

I am almost finished the lower ribbing.  The collar and front edges (more 2x2 ribbing) will complete the garment.


  1. So far, so good. You do lovely work both knitting and sewing!

  2. I am in awe of your (anyone's) knitting skills. Love this.

  3. This is just beautiful, Kay. So glad to see you're enjoying your weeks away from the grind.

  4. Looks just great, and a little goth right now. It'll be beautiful.

  5. This is lovely - and I am so glad to see you again. I've missed you!

  6. Can you offer suggestions of "must see" fabric and yarn stores in Ottawa? I am coming in for a business trip from Calgary at the end of March and trying to decide if I should plan extra time to indulge my habit. Any suggestions? Much appreciated.


    1. Sadly, Ottawa is hardly a fabric-shopping mecca. There is Darrell Thomas Textiles to the west of downtown, and a yarn store near the market downtown. Otherwise, you have to travel out to the burbs.
