I'm taking part in Luvinthemommyhood's knit along this time around. It is a tops, tanks and tees knit along so if you are making or planning on making yourself a top, a tank or a tee then come and join in!

The knit along is running until May 23rd, after which there will be a giveaway!

I'm making this cardigan except I'm making it long sleeved and I have started at the ribbing under the bust to make it a short cardigan. According to my gauge, I am using 5.5mm needles for the ribbing and 6mm for the rest. I cast on using the long tail cast on method as this gives the edge more stretch.

Unfortunately, I was away for the cast on date so I started a week late. I cast on last Wednesday night and so far I am about half way up the back. I LOVE this pattern, it is turning out so cute! Especially in the colour I picked which is a soft, turquoisey / tealy blue. I love this colour at the minute!

I wish I knew how to knit! That sweater is going to look amazing when you are done. I like the idea of shortening it. Can't wait to see the finished product.
