I know, I’ve been a pretty slack blogger the last few weeks (oh, ok, months!). I don’t know why but I haven’t really felt the blogging mojo much. Interesting, in a time when lots of people are going even more public in an online way with their day to day activities (facebook, twitter, I’m looking at you!) that I’ve retreated a little bit. I suppose it’s party because since I’ve been off work I’ve been a much more social knitter in real life.
The point of this introduction is by way of providing an apology for not blogging at all about my Tour de France KAL project – until today – the last day of the three week race! I decided to race for the yellow jersey (ie complete a whole project during the tour) and my chosen project is Bruegel, a lovely (but of course!) aran weight cabled cardigan from Rowan 44, using Rowan Kid Classic.
And so we reach the last day and here is my progress:
I’m pretty darn pleased with it, if I do say so myself! I took this photo earlier today, and so I’ve now finished the right front – now all I have to do is knit the collar/band pieces (on the held stitches you can see on each front piece). And of course block and seam. But if I get the knitting done, I’ll consider that a win!
