Look, Ma! Her eyes are open!
This is the top-down cardigan sweater I am knitting Willow to conform to her school's new uniform standards. I am under no illusion that I will be finished the sweater by the time she starts Kindergarten in two weeks - but then again, it will be a good 2 months before she probably will need to wear it.
The temperature today people? 95'F/36'C in the afternoon with a humidity factor of 107'F/42'C. I *hate* summer.
Anyway, I am not terribly keen on this pattern. It is not well-written (many line mistakes in different areas), they don't give how many stitches you should have at crucial areas of the sweater, and I have had to fudge things as I have gone along. I don't think I will be knitting anything from this book again. I know my Mom loves doing top-down patterns, so this book may be coming her way (and she can feel her way through it). I much prefer raglan sweaters worked from the bottom up.
