Cast on for new project

I haven't been finishing stuff up as quickly as I usually do, and I think that's because I've been working on larger projects.

The Mystery Stole #3 is taking some time. I'm still on clue 3 (she's posted 4 and getting ready to post the fifth). I've slowed down on knitting it. It's not something I can work on without real concentration.

I also cast on for a cardigan for me. It's the Cardigan for Arwen pattern from Interweave Fall 2006 and I'm knitting it with cheapo Lion Brand Pound of Love. I would like a sweater that's machine wash/dry proof.

It's actually knitting up quite nicely:

I had some trouble reading the chart the first 8 rows (as you can see on the left side of the photo), so I wrote out the instructions on the index card thingy. It's working quite nicely and helps me keep my place. I also cast on to knit the whole cardigan instead of knitting it in panels. We'll see how well that goes. :)

Brave girl!! I love that pattern and want to do it myself pretty soon. I was just looking at it last night and trying to decide on yarn.

That is in my queue - I actually knit the whole back & then had to frog it because the yarn I was using didn't look good in the cables. Heartbreaking. I had issues with that chart too - brilliant! I'll do that when I'm ready to start again. I can't wait to see how the no-panel version works. I'll be watching.
