My very first 'big' knitting project !

I've knitted alot of things already. Small and simple things, like a scarf, but never anyting 'big'. Well, that is going to change ! I decided that I needed a 1940s cardigan. Usually my mother knits for me but this time I'd like to try it myself. Finding the right pattern was not easy. At all. It had to be a rather simple pattern because I am a beginner and I greatly prefer thick needles and thick yarn. After searching for a long time, I found a pattern for the 'Date-maker cardigan', from 1946. This cardigan is also worn by Rachel Mcadams in the movie 'The Notebook' (One of my favourites !). As I started knitting, I felt a bit nervous because this is my very first big project. But the pattern is really easy and I like it so much and cannot wait to see the finished product !

 Soon I can start shaping the armholes !

Do you like knitting ?

with love,

Jip.

I love knitting! I'm not sure if I'm able to participate in the knitalong. I have to finish a sweater and then I have to crochet a christmas gift.

Good luck with your cardi, it looks beautiful!

Me too ! The knit-along ends January 31st, so that's almost 3 months. I'm sure you can participate.

Thank you ! :)

How splendidly exciting! I'm not a knitter myself, but I certainly admire (and love wearing) the art and those with the skill to do it.

Wishing you all the best with your project!

Huch, ich sollte wohl meine Blogliste lieber doch anders herum abarbeiten - da ist das Projekt ja schon! Toll, vom Datemaker habe ich schon viele ganz wundervolle Versionen gesehen und mit der Farbe wird Deine Version auch wunderschön! :)
