I love this cardigan!

Hi! I'm new to this KAL, but I'm oh-so-happy I found it. Of course, I had already started on the right front, when I read the notes about doing it all in one piece..ugh. However, since I plan on making more than one, I might just try that on the next one.

I'm making mine in the Malabrigo merino, in the Olive color - beeeutiful! But, of course, I want other colors, too. And after completing the back and left front, I eyed it and thought it looked kinda small (I'm making the third size). We'll see how blocking and the button bands will improve that, though.

This is also another sort of *celebriknit*, since it's my first time doing cables...yay!!! And they're coming out quite nicely, I dare say. I want to put cables on everything now...hehe. I'll be back with some progress pics, too!
