An update on Memories of Maine

Just wanted to share a photo of my progress on Memories of Maine, my take on Marilyn King's Cape Cod Cardigan. I talked previously about how easily the sweater has been to knit. While I still adore it, I have to say that the sleeve is a mother-of-a-dog. Not that it's difficult - it's not - but I've been sparring with this sleeve all weekend and don't have that much to show for it.

But it is pretty, isn't it? And I think it will fit well given the overall shaping.

I was thinking that getting this done by Thanksgiving would be a breeze, but now I'm worried I'll be knitting up to the last minute. What else can I do but persevere? And knit.


  1. Your cardigan is going to be sooooo beautiful. Can´t wait to see when it is finished. I want to send you some good energy so you will have the will power to knit the rest of the sleeves, good luck and be patience.

  2. I just love the cable definition! It screams cozy & comfort. Another damned fine job of sweater making !!! I love everything about it, except for the color. I'd like one in Red.

  3. I think it's staggering that you've already knit this far! You go!
