Dream in Color Cardigan

Such a springy, unsplitting, easy yarn to work with; the second sweater I’ve made with the same colorway, same machine-washable yarn.

I’m still following the “cartoon” for measurements from Beth Brown-Reinsel’s Gansey book, but otherwise, just knit as I go, this time including the texturing from Starmore’s Celtic Collection (k-p-k-p-k-p- on one side, and k on the reverse): a nice nubble. The cabled circle with the bobble in the middle is also from her Celtic Collection.

about six stitches to the inch on #6 needles

I’ll get another picture when it’s dried and be-buttoned, and--wowser-- on someone, instead of flattened like a bug.
