New on my needles

Hi Everyone
Exciting news today ! - I have a new knitting project on my needles. A cropped cardigan with 3/4 sleeves called Miette. This is a free download pattern from Ravelry by Andi Satterlund.

                               

Regular readers may have noticed I'm using the yarn from my crochet cardigan, recently ripped out ! I finally made the decision a few days ago and it's exactly the right one. Read about the issue here.
 The Miette cardigan is going well and the yarn is exactly right for the project. I love the colour and the linen element in the yarn works beautifully. I've made great progress, the pattern calls for a worsted weight yarn so I've held two strands of my lighter weight yarn together. The pattern is very clear and easy to use and I'm enjoying the process very much.
I'm thinking about making the fit rather more 'boxy' and leaving out the bust shaping ? I think I will have more use out of a looser fit cardigan ? Still not sure about this one. I'm hoping I will get to that part today and will then decide.
Thanks for calling in today.
