My shipment of Sublime organic cotton DK came in a few days ago, just in time for some Christmas knitting : ) I immediately started the Double V Cardigan   and gosh I am excited! I have knitted a bit more than the photo below, since I just bound off for the back.

This is only my second ever  go at knitting a sweater and I never knew how much note taking, counting and maths could be involved in knitting. This pattern has you begin the neck shaping before the side shaping is completed and then the neck shaping continues while the armhole and shoulder shaping is worked. For me, a relatively new knitter this is a  lot to handle, but I’m happy powering through it and will be delighted when I’m done and can wear something I truly made myself.

I also cast on for a pair of bright pink anklets, but they will be hibernating for a while since I can’t stop knitting this sweater!
