In the Pink

Spring has arrived, and maybe even summer, if my roses have anything to say about it.

Usually in the spring, my knitting starts to take a back seat to my other passion, gardening, but the past week was spent home with sick kids, and then they lovingly passed it on to me. While I was doing my Dr. Mom routine, I sat down and spent some time cleaning out my knitting basket. Actually the basket was overflowing into a nearby box, so I decided it was time to sort out the skeins and make some sense of the hodge podge I'd collected there.

There amongst all the skeins, the ones I want to swatch from and the ones I'm considering for the "next" project was my Lucy Cardigan.

I cast this on in late winter because the pink made me feel like was spring was near, but for whatever reason, hadn't done much past the first inch or so. Suddenly, this UFO piqued my interest again, so I picked it up, and as you can see, I've added a few more inches to it in the last week. After knitting with so much sock yarn of late, size 6 needles and a nice worsted like Cascade 200 seemed like just the sort of thing.

It's knit from the bottom up in one piece, then the sleeves knit and added and the entire thing finished in one piece. Given my recent record on sewing things up (like my poor Jawbreaker) and finishing them, perhaps the Lucy will have better luck of finding its way into my closet.
