Chug Chug Chugging along on my currant cardigan project.  I knit a proper gauge swatch and everything. Swatch said it would get a wee bit wider, but grow quite a bit in length. I can say from experience this is true, since I used the same yarn for my Rocky Coast cardigan and it grew like 5 inches in length when I blocked it. Oops. Didn't wash that swatch.

So far I've really enjoyed the knit. Increasing for the raglan sleeves while still following the charted pattern was difficult, but I eventually got it figured out.

Smooth sailing from here. I just need to add about 12 inches in length, while decreasing for waist shaping, then increase for hips, knit the bottom rib, pump out two stockinette sleeves, then knit the two button bands and attach them, block and find buttons.

Easy, right?
