I have 14 skeins of Debbie Bliss Cathay that I got from Little Knits. I was going to make Delicate Cardigan by Debbie Bliss but then decided it was too short for my taste.
Then I saw this sweater (ravelry link) which was adapted from Wendy Bernard's Something Red...but I wasn't wanting to do the math to make it work.
So, I got a copy of Nicky Epstein's Knitting Over the Edge from the library and my copy of Ann Budd's sweater pattern book and I started creating.
I'm trying for a v-neck cardigan which tapers in at the waist - a button or two and a little detailing here and there.
Here's the stitch I chose for the hem.
We'll see how it goes - it will be knit from the bottom up, raglan sleeved. I have my wonderful tubing so I can keep trying it on.
I'll keep you posted.
