WIP Wednesday: Yet Another Cardi

Earlier this year, I knit a cardigan for a friend of mine. She loved it so much, that she's been asking me if I'd knit her another one! Since she pays for the yarn and takes me out to dinner as a thank you (and I get to play with pretty yarn I don't have to pay for myself ;) ) I was eager to knit her something new - especially as I was currently between major projects - so last Wednesday we went shopping for some yarn for the Terra Linda Cardigan. I've been wanting to knit this for ages, so was eager to get to do it on her dime ;)

I swatched that same night (realizing I had to go up two full needle sizes! From a 5.0mm to a 6.0mm!), cast on the following day, and have been happily knitting ever since!
The pattern is extremely well-written and easy to follow, so I haven't had any problems with it at all so far. The yarn is lovely and soft, and even the fact that the pattern is mostly purl doesn't seem to bother me. If it continues like this, this may just turn out to be one of my favourite projects this year! :)
