As if I needed another project...

The 'Granny Smith' Cardigan 'in the rotation' click on the picture to purchase the patternPeace Fleece Baby Cardigan, one of my projects 'in the rotation'

The Kauni Knitalong; click on the button to join in!

but I couldn't help myself! I fell in love with the Kauni cardigan and HAD to succumb to it. I ordered the yarn yesterday (from Jannette's Rare Yarns on eBay), and it's on the way. If I'm lucky I will have it in time to take on our next attempt at camping over the 4th of July. If you'd like to participate in the Kauni Knitalong, click on the Kauni KAL button above. I ordered the rainbow colorway, which looks like the colors Ruth used on the pattern.

This is my favorite kind of knitting: colorwork in the round with steeks! Honestly, using steeks makes color knitting SO much easier, you knit every round and there's no purling with 2 or more colors, which I truly do not enjoy.

You can download a .PDF file with the free pattern here

So I'm now up to 3 1/2 projects in various stages of completion (not good, I get nervous when I have more than 2 going at once!): the Peace Fleece baby sweater (just have to do the collar and bands on this one), the Granny Smith cardigan (pretty lace pattern in Rowan Kidsilk Haze; I have knit the back on this, then put it aside for unknown reasons. I am making this sweater for myself, which may be why it is now on the bottom of my 'to do' pile), the doll sweater and panties for Vicki (this really needs to go to the top of the rotation, as she has been waiting for me to finish this for ages), and now the Kauni cardigan. Help me Jebus! I need to finish SOMETHING soon!

OOPS, that's 4+ projects, I forgot about the Touring Wrap I started on the last camping trip. No more new projects until I finish at least one of these!
