I've made good progress on my cardi this week only the sleeves and edging left to go. I'm hoping the edging will tighten and finish it off nicely as the motif border seems a bit floppy on the bottom at the moment. We go on holiday this friday and I was desperately hoping it would be finished in time so I could start my next project and also wear the cardi on holiday. As it is only short sleeves there may still be time to get it finished. Has anyone tried the no chain foundation start in crochet? I was chatting on a crafty forum and found that I am not the only one who hates that first row in crochet. Any pattern that requires a long foundation chain tends to get ditched as I find it so twisty and fiddly! The cardi sleeves require a 84 stitch foundation chain so I'm going to try this method out.

I am so excited about my next project - the Lore Hoodie from Vampire Knits. It has been very hard to stick to just the one WIP but I know that if I start many then they never reach the end. I havent used acrylic in ages but I'm hoping to get lots of wear out of this hoodie so a machine washable yarn appealed. Looking forward to a week in the caravan knitting :-)
