A knitter's life

 Sometimes I have lots of knitting to do and other times very little.  At the moment I have no test knitting or samples to do so I am getting on with a cardigan for myself.  I am on the first sleeve.  The plan was to do 2 at a  time but I cast on the first one and decoded to just leave it at that.  (The pattern is Daffodil by Helga Isager and the yarn is Isager Highland wool).  The yarn I am using is very light but looks as if it could be incredibly warm.  It is the first time using this yarn but I am sure it won't be the last.  In fact there are other designs by Helga that I am looking forward to making.  They are classic designs and are just the sort of thing I like to wear.  I had planned to have this finished but with a few test knits and samples that needed doing with deadlines this got put on the back burner.  But hopefully it won't take too long to knit the rest and I can wear it.  The weather here is still cool enough in the mornings and evenings to need an extra layer.
