I’m making great progress on the Tilt Cardigan.

Tilt Cardigan 02-18-19

Once I made it past the section where I was doing two different sets of stitch reductions, it’s been a bit easier to knit without intense concentration.  Now I only have to pay attention to the front section decreases each round, and I’ve got it mapped out so I can knit relatively easily without much thought.

I may actually finish this garment by May to show it off at the Men’s Spring Knitting Retreat!

Even with the simpler knitting going forward, I stared an even simpler project.

This is just a simple garter stitch stole in two beautiful yarns.  I’m in no hurry to finish this.  I’ll work on it at a leisurely pace when my eyes are tired.
