There has been a dearth of knitting on the blog recently - partly because I knitted a secret project and forgot to take any photos of it - but partly because I knitted the back of a sweater and then had to frog it.
I cast on for Jess last year but the warm weather got the better of me and I put it aside until it was cool enough to knit a lapful of alpaca. I have been knitting the back and the yarn is just lovely, soft and warm. However, I am also terribly allergic to it - so I'm officially abandoning the project.
Christina did offer to knit it for me, but I suspect that the allergies would prevent me from wearing the cardi as well as knitting on it. So, she can take possession of a bag of red alpaca!
