Zoom Zoom

Now that I am finished with the Printed Silk Cardi I am starting another knit out of the Interweave Spring magazine...the Flutter Sleeve Cardigan. I ordered the yarn from Webs and as usual they deliver fast! I received it this past Monday afternoon in the mail and cast on just an hour before dinner. I am 2/3 finished with the is a lot of stockinette but there is something addictive about the pattern with just enough stitch change in between to keep from getting boring. Here it is Thursday morning, at this rate I will have this finished in about a week, if all goes well with my time. The pattern is actually extremely easy, no complicated stitches to memorize or get tricked up on. So far the only change I plan on making is adding 3 buttons to the front instead of the 2 the pattern calls for, and changing the direction of the button holes from vertical to horizontal.
The yarn is wonderful to knit with too.
Classic Elite Silk
The color way is called tomato but it looks more like strawberry.
