Not only do I have the Motley Crew-Neck blocking, but I have four days worth of knitting on my next sweater. I may actually finish this one before the end of the month.
OK, so it's Cascade 109 Tweed at 3.25 spi on 7mm/US10.75 needles and a basic top-down cardigan from Karen's Unpattern, but it's a sweater I need and will use for days hanging around home or casual walks and errands. And it will knit up quickly. I've done knitted-on front bands in seed stitch, will pick up and knit a seed stitch neck band and trim the cuffs and bottom with seed stitch. I did a garter stitch detail on the raglan line that echoes the seed stitch trims.
I haven't done many buttonholes and I believe they'd look funky at this gauge regardless, so I'll blanket-stitch them with some crewel yarn, probably double stranded. I have some nice classic black buttons in my stash. And I'll do my first real pockets also trimmed with a seed stitch band. I'm debating if I should do the pockets in some lighter-weight gray Cascade 220 I have in my class-yarn stash. If I feel adventurous, I could double-knit them. Maybe.
Cascade seems to have discontinued the yarn. Either that or everyone cleared it out at the same time to make way for Spring and Summer stock. Actually, it's not on the list of cuurent yarns at Cascade's site. I bought 3 different colors marked 40% off of Cascade's already reasonable price. And I got free shipping. This is color 7616. It feels soft, not at all scratchy, but shows no sign of wear where I cast on and ripped the first few rows four times.
I have enough for probably five sweaters. I hope we don't get tired of it.
