I hadn't planned on blogging about my Vine Yoke Cardigan just yet because, I'm embarrassed to say, I was feeling a little superstitious -- things were going so well, so why chance it? I also wanted to have more progress to show before I posted about it.

But it seems there are some errata in the right sleeve section of the pattern, which is what I'm going to be starting next, so I think I'm going to put the knitting on hold until that's all straightened out.

So, here's what I've done so far: the right front.


I like how the button band is a little frilly,



and the cables are super-easy.


There's a hell of a lot of short rows going on (without the wraps being picked up), which is good practice for me, since in the past I've immediately forgotten how to do short rows right after I do them.



And the Pearl Ten. My camera and photog skills can't capture its beauty. And it looks amazing in garter stitch!

I LOVE the Pearl Ten color--it's one of my favorites! I have some of it in lace that I plan on using for a Hannah Fettig sweater (go figure). :)
