I visited Broad Ripple Knit/Mass Ave Too during a bike ride on Monon Trail a week and a half ago. The store was fabulous – lots of yarn and pattern books, plus very helpful, friendly staff! I picked up Breeze a book of 21 designs by Kim Hargeaves. I would honestly knit all 21 projects, which is quite unusual to find in one book.

Under the book you can see the beginning of my first project – Daisy, a neat fitting cardigan with contrasting trim. Shown below in pink.

And here we have 3/4 of the back complete! I’m using Jo Sharp DK Cotton rather than the Rowan Classic Pima Cotton DK used in the book. Jo Sharp is a less expensive, though not cheap alternative. The main color is umber and the contrasting trim will be oyster.
