summer sweater knit along - ohhhh the garter of it!

pattern: something silver by veera valimaki yarn: yellow label dk by tanis fiber arts in colorway pink grapefruit

it's summer sweater knit along day today!  i'm so close to being done the body of my sweater...i cannot wait!  i've got about 12 rows of garter stitch left and i can bind off!  so exciting!   this part is either where it drags on for me or where it gets really exciting.  i'm stuck in the middle of both at the moment.  i'm feeling like i've been knitting garter for ages but yet i'm super excited to bind off. 

one of the fun things i got to do with this cardigan was to make pockets.  i haven't done a pocket on an adult garment before and i was really interested to see how veera was going to do it.  this pattern has been so nice to work and so intuitive and the pockets didn't disappoint.  easy!  the cardigan also fits perfectly!  i'm beyond happy. i didn't have to make any mods and the neckline, bust and arms so far seem spot on.  i am one happy knitty momma.

you likey?  i likey....all that grapefruit goodness is so addicting!  i can't wait to wear this instead of just hold it in my lap.  i've been so proud of everyone in our kal. people are having so much fun, conversations are a plenty and the many gorgeous pics of wip's and fo's.  some of you are casting on for project 2 and 3!!!! go ladies go!!!!  does my heart good!  i can't even begin to tell you how fun it is to see this little dream of mine come into reality.  i'm so glad you are all having so much fun and are all knitting - in the summer!!! yay summer knits!!!! just think how awesome it's going to be this fall when you have sweaters galore all ready to snuggle up in! fabulous!
