I think its gonna get froggedAfter languishing in my wip pile during the heat of Georgia summer and fall I finally picked the Seed Stitch Card back up.  Everything is done except the button bands and collar.  But I think its gonna get frogged.

At first I thought the problem was the yarn I subbed, the pattern calls for Pear Tree 8 ply 107 yards = 50 grams, I used Frog Tree Merino Melange 101 yds = 50 grams.

But no I think I either should have made a size smaller or that I would like it better with a lighter weight yarn (its dense) or its just the pattern. Thoughts?

Its too bulky/loose under the arms

I think its gonna get frogged

Its tragic really because it is a beautiful sweater and those cables are lovely.

the yarn is beautiufl

and I managed to successfully modify it for long sleeves

I think part of the problem might be how much I still love my central park non-hoodie, in fact if this gets frogged that’s what the yarn will be.

You know what makes me sad? The are only 4 photos in my 2009 WiPs set on Flickr. FOUR photos and I haven’t finished one project! In all fairness the first half of this year was insane! However, I’m taking some steps to taking by my time, including saying no sometimes. I’ve been working on the Seeded Cables Cardigan since January according to Ravelry. Not sure when I’ll actually get to wear it down here, but I know it will love it. The back and right front are done, I’m almost done with the left front. So close! I will finish it by the end of August!

oh man! I have so much to catch up on. I don’t do New Year’s Resolutions, if I did they would be the same things I tell myself I need to work on all year long, eat better, drink less, exercise more, be a kinder person, have more patience, you get the idea.  How about you? Do you make resolutions?

Let’s start with the back log Christmas gifts!

Day 2

I did a lot on the Second Day.  I visited the Central Market, full of local wares and handicrafts and Petaling Market, with knock offs of every name brand you can think of.  I didn’t buy a thing 😉

I went to Batu Caves

and climbed all 272 steps to the top

Long way to go

Once inside you go through the cave where you come out in this opening, very cool

Yep I’m off again.  Thursday at 6 am my flight leaves for Kuala Lumpur.  I’ll be there for about a week for work.  I’m hoping I’ll have plenty of time for sight seeing and picture taking too, so expect new pictures.

In other news I’ve had some time to knit, but it’s that time of year again – super secret Christmas knitting, so no pictures, except sneaky ones.

I woke up this morning to find an email from KnitPicks in my inbox.  I have to confess I’ve never really been interestd in color work, I apprecaite the complexity of it, but I haven’t had a lot of desire for the finished prodcut.  Until now.  Look at these bags!  Also I just noticed KnitPicks ad that  say “Yarn diet? What Yarn diet?” woooo they are evil!
