Cassis Cardigan

Ok....well, finally right.  I've been working on this a bit too long but the stockinette just goes on and on.  Love the look.  First time working with Yowza Yarn from Miss Babs and love it.  And I do love the pattern....many options and easy to go with.

New Sweater

Ok....so Boxy and Buttony is finally finished.  I know....I already have a cardigan or two on the needles already, but this is a pullover....something I haven't done in a long while and I was persuaded by Sue to do this....so far so good.  It's almost all stockinette, so it might kill me but I'm going for it.  Yarn is Geilsk...50/50 wool and cotton.  Love the knitting with this yarn.
