WIP Wednesday #12 - two at a time

Another Wednesday rolls round, don't the weeks go fast? Just a short post as I've not much to say
On my needles this week is a baby cardigan, the first of 4 for my god-daughter's baby due in October.  This is a pattern I've used several times, but each time I've knitted it I've not been happy with the length of the raglan shaping - too long, so I have adjusted the pattern and we will see how it goes. I am knitting this in Cygnet Superwash Pure Merino DK yarn - cream, on 4mm needles.  It a Peter Pan pattern from book 280, I'm doing a combination of design 1a and 1b - 1b's pattern on 1a's neckline.
I have nearly completed the fronts of the cardigan for me, its knitting up really quickly, so aim to try and get this done before I go on holiday.

Below is the yarn for my next ten stitch, I have done a few combinations of strands and worked out how I want the rounds to look.  I'm hoping that this one will be as successful as the blue/grey combo which turned out to be most people's favourite.

  2. I am absolutely LOVING the colors for the next ten-stitch! And you cardigan...so pretty!Where are you going on Holiday? I am so proud of you...multiple projects at once!

  3. That 10-stitch is going to be interesting to watch, such an interesting selection of colors :)

  4. These look great! Can't wait to see your ten stitch!

  5. Okay, I'll join in. Those colors simply rock. Definitely in my favorite range. I can't wait to see it grow.

    The baby cardi is so charming and I love the color you choose for you own. Lovely projects as always.

    Take care.

  6. A very sweet start on the baby cardigan! But what's a ten stitch?

  7. I'm going to have to have a look at just how you to a ten stitch - yours are beautiful.

  8. You rule when it comes to 10 stitch. Iam sure that it will be stunning and many people's favourite.

    The baby cardi is so pretty and will become a heirloom, I'm sure.

    Your cardi is well awesome and I'm sure you will have it finished before going on holiday. What a nice addition to the waredrobe.

  9. I love the colours for your next 10 stitch, they're beautiful (but I've loved all of your 10 stitches, so it's not surprising I guess!)

  10. That baby sweater is going to be adorable.
