{In Progress}

My current knitting obsessions is the Ambrosia Cardigan (rav link) from my Interweave Knits summer 2010 that I just got in the mail.  It's my first knit from a magazine and I even had the EXACT right yarn on hand!  The kind that the pattern asked for!  How awesome is that?  It's a top down knit too, my first grown up sized one, so it feels like it's taking longer to knit, but really it's probably going faster because there will be no need to piece anything together at the end.

Yesterday I put it on scrap yarn and tried it on.  I'm so STOKED!!


It's the perfect size!! The only other top I've knit for myself was that big sweater I did, but it's so terribly unflattering that I've never worn it out.    THIS one is going to be a favorite I think!! YAY!  It's knit in a 100% cotton that is super stiff, so with an inch or so of negative ease I think it's going to feel somewhat like a corset. lol  It's also kinda hard on the hands to knit, but I've been powering through. :)
