Despite being named the 'Sit Com Cardi' by designer Bonnie Marie Burns, my cardi, having viewed 4 hours of Survivor since last Thursday, should maybe be re-named the 'Survivor Cardi'.
There aren't too many evenings of TV viewing in my year that beat the Survivor Finale. Last night was no exception. And!! Russell lost again. Not one vote!! Wake up Russell. There is a social side to the game. I'm convinced that people make most of life's decisions, using their heart, not their mind. Russell doesn't know or chooses to ignore that.
Even using the finer Dk weight yarn - a slower knit at 22 stitches than the called for heavy worsted at 18 stitches, my Cardi is racing towards completion. Famous last words perhaps, but the body is now done to the underarms.
I tried 5 rows of ribbing on the sleeve -
It is certainly fun to work up such a quick knit. Definite progress seen after each knitting session. Quite a change from the Waterloo Fairisle and the Gaggle of Garter Tomten. Sit Com or Survivor watching, speed is a great thing for a summer sweater, given the fact that I never start them early enough.
