The main part of the cardi is done and I have cast on for both the sleeves.  At Erin’s suggestion I am knitting them at the same time “like Mum always did” and I am sure most other people do.  Knitting the sleeves at the same time has always been a bore to me in the past but I do realise all of the benefits like increases and decreases at the same places and even length.  So, I have cast on both of them and continue to carry around two enormous balls of yarn – I think I’ll have enough left over to knit Sophie some new longies….

Photos to follow when I have charged the camera battery.
