a new red sweater for me

gosh it's been forever since i posted here, but i started a new little red cardigan and laura prompted me to share it. this is the sweater i meant to knit last year, but never did. i'm using briar rose grandma's blessing in a gorgeous blood-red color, and working up my own design.

so far i have one front piece completed and part of the other. i usually start with a sleeve, but decided that i needed to see the buttonbands and neckline before i went on to the rest.

i am knitting it on size 3 needles and couldn't be happier with how it is turning out. i'd like to have it done to wear to rhinebeck.
