We have quite a few interesting days for watching sport on the television this weekend.
In the morning it's the qualifying session for the second Formula 1 race of the season from Malaysia. Lunchtime sees a televised football match between Everton and Wolves. In the afternoon it's the Grand National (not that I enjoy seeing those poor horses falling over the high fences). In the evening it's day 3 of the Masters golf tournament from Augusta.
Sunday morning is the Formula 1 race and Sunday evening is the final round of the golf tournament.
With all this wonderful sport to watch I need to carefully plan my knitting (sitting and doing nothing else is completely out of the question - I can't sit still that long). I am just sewing up a lovely black tailored cardi that I had put to one side while I knitted Eve's cardi. I'll be able to show you pictures shortly. So now I am excited about a lovely cropped cardi in one of my many magazines.
It's from the Spring/Summer 2010 edition of Designer Knitting. The pattern calls for Worsted weight mohair yarn. I'm using some 4 ply mohair from my stash but knitting it doubled. Here's what I've done so far.
The pattern has three quarter length sleeves. I would quite like to have full length sleeves but I've started panicking about the amount of yarn I have. The length of the sleeves will depend on how much yarn I have - it may well end up sleeveless! We'll just have to see how it goes.
Enjoy your weekend - even if you're not watching any sport.
