I've had four hunks of Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool in the stash for a long time, and over the break I wondered what I could make with it. I got it in my head that I wanted to do another Tangled Yoke Cardigan--an easy to wear, relatively easy to knit cardigan that would be nice and toasty.
I found the pattern and of course, the Fisherman's Wool is way too thick. But I'm holding my breath, doing the math and hoping that I can revise the pattern to a thicker gauge yarn without too many problems.
For starters, I case on about 2/3 of the stitches needed in the original pattern. I'll knit this straight up to the armpits, knit the sleeves, and then the tricky bit will be the yoke. However, I think I can do the math part and figure out how many pattern repeats I need to make the sweater look good. Mathiness is a bit of a strength of mine.
I love the color, I love knitting with it, and I think it will be a great cardigan.
First day of class went fine, met our new President which went fine, my head is down and I'll plow through.
