New Knits

I needed a day off and decided it was time to finish this short sleeved cardigan that I have been dawdling over for months. It is my own design, with a high neck and shorter sleeves and is made from Malabrigo Rastita, a deliciously soft merino single. If I could, everything I knit would be in this yarn.
To make the neck fit right and not pull back, I did a bunch of short rows before I began the raglan shaping. It looked funny, bulging out, until it was blocked, and now, phew! it looks just right. Better yet, it fits just like I wanted it to do.

This pullover will be my go-to summer top. Made from Berrocco Weekend yarn, a cotton/acrylic blend, it is cuddly and airy. Gotta love raglan knitting!
I enjoyed my day off, and had a nice snooze, along with many garden walks. No digging!

Today is knitting group, and first I will be visiting Lowe's and Walmart in search of more annuals. I need alyssum, pink begonias, nasturtium and hyacinth bean seeds, and whatever is on sale!

How to snooze:

    Love that you knit on your day off. I have a couple of knitting projects going for the end of the day when I am too tired to do anything else. Also, I knit because it is the only thing I can do with three dogs in my lap...
