Here's what I've been working on the past few nights. Extra inches of ribbing on the Cambridge Cardigan my boy's been wearing for the past few years. Seems the length just wasn't sitting right for His Nibs. After two years. (Some of you are noticing a Man Behavioral Pattern here and remembering a certain Debbie Bliss Incident a few years back)


Anyways, here's a happy boy, with his newly augmented sweater. I was afraid the ribs would change the look of the cardigan, but in the end, this was a painless way to make him happy.

I had a few extra skeinlets floating around from the original (is that a word? I'm thinking it should be..) so I was happy to go back and play with the stash too. (!!)


You can see how little he'd been wearing it -- it has FOLD MARKS from being on the shelf!

But anyways, he's happy now - and he's taking me away for the weekend, to an amazing inn in Maine, so he did deserve his little sweater fix, didn't he? I just have to figure out what small project I'm taking with me...
