This is what I was referring to in the last post when I said my knitting ADD is pretty much as bad as ever: I started another new project! This is the Metro cardigan by Connie Chang Chinchio from the latest issue of Twist Collective. When I saw the latest issue this pattern jumped out at me more than any other. I absolutely love the simplicity of the design and the small cable detail at the neckline, and I'm excited to try top-down set in sleeves, too!
The yarn I'm using is String Classica cashmere which I've been hoarding for over 3 years for just the right project. I only have 10 balls but I think that should be enough. I'm just past the waist decreases and on the second ball, so that seems to bode well for having enough to finish the whole thing. This past week we finally had a break in the weather and it's become possible to think about the coming fall . . . I can't wait to wear sweaters and scarves again! This summer's been absolutely brutal and I'm really hoping the cooler weather holds out.
As for the pattern itself, it's incredibly well-written and brilliantly thought out, down to the last detail. Following a pattern like this is pure pleasure and I'm looking forward to getting to the top-down sleeves to see how they work and how the instructions are written. If only I had more time to knit I would be making more of Connie's designs for sure!
