I've also started my Gentle Rose cardigan. It was something to work on between being on stage last week in our annual Gilbert and Sullivan production, and kept me calm and focused. I've found myself making all kinds of errors on the purl rows - I keep slipping purl stitches instead of working them. This led to a lot of holes, so I ended up ripping 19 rows out after deciding I didn't want holes in my lovely jumper. I mean, I spent £85 on the yarn for it (most of it was birthday money) so I really want it to be something special. Because of the mistakes, I've slowed down my knitting quite a bit to make sure everything is perfect. It means the jumper won't knit up as quickly as I may like, but at least the weather is getting warmer. Hopefully, the quality of Malabingo worsted merino means I will have a stunning cardi to wear for many years to come.
