Kina progress...

This week in my creative space I have been slowly making progress on

It's growing ever so slowly, as I add another purl row here and another knitted row there. No matter how long this little number is going to take, I'm very much in love!

I'm about 2cm off casting off for the sleeves and I'm guessing that once this is done its pretty much more smooth sailing of the stockinette stitch right to the end... perfect!

I'm determined to get this cardi finished because I have a nasty habit of starting gorgeous projects and not getting around to finishing them!
Not this time folks!!!

What do you think of the colour?? I'm feeling very much into blue at the moment... in case you couldn't already tell! lol

Whats been happening in your creative space this week??

  1. thats looking really pretty in that colour!!!....after seeing that I might give mine another go...thanks for the inspiration!!! :)

  2. I love that bit when you cast off the sleeves and all of a sudden you speed along the rows and then soon you can start trying it on or laying it out to look like a cardi.

  3. I've not seen that pattern before. I am going to fave it. The yarn you have chosen is really beautiful. I love that colour.

  4. Excellent color! The Lady kina cardigan is very cute. I just made a Katrina Ballerina cardigan which is similar in style. I think the sleeveless ones are easy to wear.

  5. Thanks for all of the lovely comments! I managed to finish off on the sleeves today and am soooo excited that it actually looks like a proper cardigan now! I'm so close to finishing, if I hook in tomorrow I might just get it done!

  6. I am totally in love with that colour Ellie! Can't wait to see the finished cardi.

  7. You are very talented! Wish I knew how to knit. I adore this color.

  8. This cardi is looing so much better in real life Ellie!!!

    I'm so proud of you for sticking with the project as most beginner knitters would have called it quits by now...
