I recently completed this childrens sweater for my nephew Jaxon. It worked great. I'm not sure if his mother will ever put it on him but I'm certain the sizing was good - if not a little big for him right now.
So, I thought, now that I've tackled a small sweater in this lopi pattern then I'll do a nice big one for me. The cardigan in this picture.
I did the cuff at the bottom and the pattern, it worked great, except it's made for a munchkin.
I wonder if anyone else has had this problem. I've made two sweaters now and both turned out well - this one I really want for me, as I've knit the others for my partner and my nephew. How frustrating! Ommmm...

The sock yarn i bought today is called Sockotta, its from plymouth their italian collection. its 45%cotton, 40% superwash wool and 15% nylon. It looks like colored kite string not yarn. Ive hear comments of socks knitting up quickly. Right, its going to take weeks to make a pair of socks. I hope there is enough. I got 414 yards. looks to be enough. the swatch looks great, the colors are wonderful. I hope the socks look as good.

My addi turbos arrived today, so i started my make socks on two circular needles. It is very interesting working on the leg now. cant wait to try them on and show them. I sure like these addis, the pliable cable for sure. very slick, i drop alot of stitches, they will take some getting use too. ive been using bamboo for so long. although i did like the bamboo i didnt like the cable, it was all coiled up even with steam they didnt relax that much. Any way im using caron simply soft for the socks, Is this the right type of yarn fo
