New projects are nice

After thinking long and hard, I decided to start the Millefiori cardigan first.  I love the yarn, and I’m pretty certain on the sizing.

We went out of town over the weekend, followed by my usual 12 hour Sunday workday yesterday, so I didn’t get to work on it as much as I would have liked, but the ribbing is nearly finished! I will work on it during my break at work tonight, and hopefully later on as well.  The yarn (Ella Rae bamboo silk) is really very lovely.  Twisted ribbing is slow, but so much prettier than normal 1×1 would be in this inelastic yarn.

It’s still cold here (29 degrees currently, proving that I am no good as a weather forecaster) but I’m planing on wearing this sweater for easter, by which point it will hopefully have gotten above the freezing point!
