A little while ago I had a washing disaster with my favourite hand knitted cardigan and it ended up like this:
This is the Geodesic cardigan by Connie Chang Chinchio. I made this back in 2012, and at first it was too big.... but over the last 3 years it has become a firm favourite, so I was very sad when it came from the wash looking like this.
Not to be deterred I wet it again and gave it a very huge block..
It came out looking like this:
While I'm not quite ready to let go of it yet, I have cast on another cardigan.
Martha cardigan (eyelet version) from Rowan 37. I've converted it to be knitted in the round and when I get both sleeves to the underarm I'm going to attempt to do the armholes using the EZ set-in sleeve method (p86 Knitting workshop by Elizabeth Zimmermann).
I love wearing cardigans but I seem to have a real lack of hand made cardigans - this oversight needs to be addressed.
