Anyone still checking this blog?

I have come to learn that the pattern is now available for FREE on the IK Knitting Daily website.

Can you all access this? You might have to register.

Lotus Blossom Tank.

Also, the Stash & Burn podcast talks about the LBT in their latest episode - Episode 20.

Cardigan Update

I'm so excited! I just tried on my dad's cardigan after sewing on one sleeve, and it looks good! The yarn feels nice, too. All this hard work is finally going to pay off. Whew, what a relief! Since it took me two hours to do one sleeve, I'm saving the other sleeve to do for tomorrow. Then, it's on to the collar and button band. I don't know exactly what I'm doing for either... I can't decide whether or not I want a foldover collar. If I make it a shawl collar, which my husband advises against but I like, it wouldn't have to fold over. Decisions, decisions : ) I will definitely post pictures when I'm done!

Once again, my Interweave Knits has not arrived yet. It seems that everyone else in blogland gets theirs early, while I get my on or after the newstand date. Argh! The first time it happened, I contacted IK and was told that the first issue sometimes arrives late depending on the date I first subscribed. Well, the two issues I've received since then have come late compared to my fellow subcribers. Good thing I like this magazine! My grumbling is now done ; )

It is finally done!

I finally finished up my LBT last week - I had all but abandoned it in the boring stockinette part, but picked it up right after Christmas and cranked it out. The recipient (my OtherMom) loved it - I hope it fits!
