Completed the left side of the cardigan. It was quite straightforward, as I am doing stranded knitting. I was able to work in the ends as I went along so that I did not have endless ends to knit in.
When I have finished the right side, I shall be blocking both of the sides.

When I first started doing the cardigan, I looked at the pattern and I thought that the leopard work would be intarsia. However, when I tried to use the intarsia method, it did not really work properly, while studying the pattern, the design was very uniform and close together. I also took reference from Rowan 24, Pebbles by Kaffe Fassett, which is very similar pattern structure, also it was stranded knitting was used.
I am working on the left front.

Stray is the new project that I am working on. It is a pattern by Andi Satterlund. Her website is
http://untangling-knots.com, She is also on Ravely, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
In the pattern, she used Jo Sharp Classic DK wool. I went to John Lewis and used their Merino DK, which is 100% superwash wool. Grey, maroon and black. Started on 4th March and working on Stray on and off. As it is a smallish project, it will not take up too much time as with a bigger work in progress.
I have been working steadily on the Polka-dot cardigan from Simply Knitting 2012. A Rosee Woodland pattern, I have slightly changed it, that there are different coloured spots and I have made it a lot longer, I am using steeks for the front and the armholes.
