Red Cabled Cardigan

I'm joining in! Red is my favorite color, and I have quite a bit of red yarn in my stash. Here is my current project, Paton's Cabled Cardigan, in a red wool-acrylic mix. (I know, I know, horror of horrors...Acrylic, but I am a poor graduate student with little time for handwashing.) Anyway, here is where it's at right now. Both sides of the front and the back done (modeled by my assistant - he know's red is his color too!) I am about half-way done with one sleeve as well. I have a blog about my other knitting pursuits as well.

Red baby sweater

A friend of mine had her second child, a son, last month. They didn't find out the gender beforehand, so last May I started this cardigan for her, on the theory that red would be appropriate no matter what flavor she got.

yarn: Cotton-Ease ("Cherry Red" #113)
pattern: Knitting Pure & Simple Babies Neck Down Cardigan #982

I finished the edges with applied I-cord, planning to put button loops on later ... only to find, when the time came (it's a boy!) that I didn't like the way they looked. So I added ties at the neck and am calling it a day.

New Member and Red Sweater

Hi! I just found this KAL today and have already joined. Thanks for the invitation!

My "Red Sweater" is the Must Have Cardigan from Paton's "Street Smarts". I am currently knitting the second sleeve and then have only to sew it together and knit the band. If anyone is interested in seeing the process, there are photos on my blog.

I look forward to seeing everyone's sweaters! I am already looking for another pattern for my next sweater.
