The pattern is Effortless Cardigan by Hannah Fettig, a top-down cardigan with the dreaded edges you have to pick up never ending numbers of stitches for. So far it has been very enjoyable to knit and I don't really mind that it is all stockinette. Surprisingly I'm finding knitting back and forth to be a nice change from circular knitting.
I picked out Berroco Vintage dk for this pattern (this was birthday yarn from my mother) when I visited Charleston, South Carolina last November. I feel that this is a good yarn for the value, which was part of the reason I like it. But I am a little concerned that it is going to pill like crazy once I start wearing it. I'm determined to trust in my undying love for Berroco that it will all be alright.
I haven't been knitting anything in purple for a while, which makes it more fun. So far I am not happy with the torso length and I left those stitches live so I can go back after I finish the sleeves and make it longer. I frequently curse the fact that I have a long torso and, as my grandmother would say, not a lot of "ba-boom ba-boom" (small chest).
I'm very optimistic about this one! It will be nice for the spring months!
