I'm going to make a effort to post more frequently, so I am going to try and stick to a WIP Wednesday in which I feature one of my "Works In Progress". This week I want to share my new sweater. The Shiny Green Monster has officially left this world and I have a sense of invigoration and freedom in the realm of sweater knitting. I had originally picked out a cardigan from the wonderful book Coastal Knits, but when I was in Portland I visited a great shop called Knit Wit Yarn Shop where I fell in love with Quince and Co. Yarns and their pattern for the Kara Cardigan.

On Boxing Day, once the Christmas knitting was complete and everyone else was out shopping, I curled up on the couch and casted on. So far I have finished the bottom ribbing and 2 lace pattern repeats. This is moving along a lot faster than I thought and I am enjoying the all over lace pattern. I am hoping that with blocking it will open up and become a bit larger, but am hopeful that it should fit well in the end.
