I'm half-way though the bottom of the cardi front (By the way, is it "cardi", or "cardy"? I've seen both. "Cardi" makes more sense to me, because the word is the first two syllables of "cardigan", and "cardy" would mean "like a card".)
I've knit this piece so many times it feels like an old friend. Maybe the third time really is the charm, because it's been smooth sailing so far.
Compared to sock knitting, these needles feel huge, and every row makes noticeable progress. It's a nice break for those times when I tire of the small needles.
