My $1.50 cardigan is coming along nicely. The decreases in the lace pattern are tricky and it took my full concentration one night to do the majority of the armhole on the left front. I'm on the right front now and I'm hoping the decreases will be easier when I get to them. Ditto the sleeves.
I cast on a pair of plain stockinette socks (using the Yarn Harlot's basic sock recipe) in some hand-dyed yarn I bought earlier this year (Lovesticks, colorway Heels on Fire, from Etsy) because I needed a portable project. The cardigan is too tricksy to just not give my full concentration to and I don't feel like doing anything difficult when I've got my hands full with the cardigan. Plus I will need it to bring with on our trip to the grandparent-in-law's in a few weeks.
