WIP Wednesday: sweater edition

Sadly, this is not all that I have on my needles at the moment. But this project is my top priority, as it is the closest to being finished! This will be #3 of the 12 sweaters in 2018 goal. The pattern is Carbeth Cardigan, and the yarn is yummy yummy Malabrigo Mecha in the Dewberry colorway. I should have finished this sweater last month--it's bulky yarn knit on size 10 needles! But I stalled out once I realized that I would need to buy additional yarn to finish this project. Being in denial, I waited a week or so before ordering more yarn. And then I needed to wind the yarn. And then it just sat there because I knew I would need to alternate skeins, since the new yarn does not match the old yarn. At all. (Hence the three balls of yarn you see in this photo--those are all attached to the body right now!). And let's face it, alternating skeins is annoying. But I have two sleeves done! And I'm a few short inches away from finishing the bottom of the body. So the end is definitely in sight! And I know I will love this sweater!  Linking up for old time's sake with Ginny at Yarn Along.


  1. Love the colour!! Hope you have a chance to wear it this spring....incentive to knit like crazy.

    1. Thanks! It feels a bit silly to be making a sweater now--we'll soon be in 80 degree weather! But that's life in Mississippi!

  2. Your Carbeth is beautiful! This is a very popular knit on Revelry. I am impressed with your knitting goal of 12 sweater...I'll be sending positive thoughts for you to complete your goal.

  3. I really likes your blog! You have shared the whole concept really well and very beautifully soulful read!Thanks for sharing.
