A Weekend of Sports

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.
