My Acer Cardigan (pattern by Amy Christoffers) is taking shape! At my current rate, I very well could have 11 or 12 better sweaters completed by the end of the year. Madness!

This pattern has been a lot of fun...so far. I'm a little worried about picking up and knitting the neck and button bands. But I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

As far as the recycled yarn goes, it's actually really lovely. At first I was a little nervous because of the crazy slub (meaning the yarn has thick and thin pieces). I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that it actually knits up relatively smoothly. The cables have some variation in size, but fortunately it's not very noticeable. (My tension is practically perfect (wink wink no srsly guys) so I blame this on the yarn.)

More images--and the finished project--to come soon!
