I really wanted to wrap up work on this cardigan before the Nihon Vogue program started last weekend but kept running into trouble with the buttonholes. My last and only encounter with buttonholes was much different. This 1×1 corrugated rib is much harder to work than garter stitch. My initial plan was to make the buttonholes that are three stitches long but that turned out too tight. Next I’ll try four stitches.
After this weekend I’ve been converted from a one-project-at-a-time knitter to a multiple project knitter. The MFA Nihon Vogue Certificate Program with Jean Wong started last weekend and within two days I had two new projects started. We started a top down raglan pullover (green) and drew a plan for a pullover vest (grey). The key to surviving the weekend (at least for me) was to stick with good old stockinette stitch thus avoiding headaches caused by needing to match repeats.
From here on out it will be a game of catch up. I need to finish the Kauni cardigan, the Angel Lace shawl and manage to get my homework done before next months class.
