I've been craving some nice lightweight cardigans for the office. While we are coming up on summer rather quickly, I still find that I want/need a bit of extra warmth to deal with the air conditioning system in my office. Just a little light something on my arms. Preferably something stylish and not the oversized plaid fleece shirt that hangs on the back of my door.
Conveniently, Knitty Gritty Yarns, one of my LYS, had its 5th Anniversary sale this weekend and marked all cotton or cotton-blend yarns at 30% off. So I picked up sufficient Cascade Ultra Pima in a grassy green color to make myself the Painted Silk Cardigan in the Spring 2008 Interweave Knits. I even did my swatch last night. I have yet to wash and block it, but so far it looks like I'll need to go down a needle size.
So why haven't I knit the second swatch yet, you ask? Because I haven't got a size four circular needle that I can find. Sheesh. It appears to be the only size I don't have. I'll make sure to get a needle that's nice and pointy too. I was having some difficulty with the twisted stitches using my old Susan Bates needles.
