more testing

I'm test-knitting another cardigan (Ravelry link only), for my daughter, this time on tiny needles and yarn. It was originally written up to size 24 mos., but then the designer, Kirsten, asked me if I wanted to test a larger size for her, so I'm doing 4-5 yrs. This means I'm about a month behind the other testers and I'm running to catch up. I just got the yarn this week and it's lovely to work with - Brown Sheep Nature Spun Sport.

I am also working on a different cardigan (for myself!) which was going to be my first steeking experience, but now this one will be. Eeek! I'll show you how it goes when I get there.

Have a great weekend!
