Knitting done



I finished the knitting on the raglan cardigan as our cat had her kittens. It was very exciting and the knitting helped to calm me down. The thing is that our cats (3) are outside cats. They basically live in the garage. The first kitten was born on the garage floor and thankfully Clint went to check on the cat because she wanted to go underneath the freezer. She actually had the second kitten behind the freezer. We put her in the bathtub and she calmed down and had the rest of the kittens (6 in total).

The cotton is definately less forgiven than the wool. My stitches are quite uneven compared to when I knit with wool. I went to Joann's yesterday to pick up darning needles and buttons (and sock needles and DIY fleece blanket and and and). So now I can actually finish the sweater.

It's looking great, very cute sweater! And congratulations on the kittens, as I told before, I'm dying of envy!

Hi. This cardigan is so cute! I immediately clicked on the linked and printed a copy for me. And this dusk pink colour is very well chosen.

Thank you Sigurlaug for a name for that color. I didn't even have a clue what it would be called in either English or Icelandic.
