I've finished my second sweater of the season! The knitting is going so well this year, and after finishing all the small Christmas gifts, I needed something long term to work on in front of the winter (reality) TV. Have I mentioned that I have a really hard time watching fictional TV anymore? My ability to suspend the disbelief is over. This, from an Animator.

Anyway, the sweater is the Heart Yoke Cardigan from Vogue Knitting Holiday 2009 (Ravelry link, if you like). There was something strange in the pattern as to where the instructions for the yoke end; I might have done an extra row of hearts. After trying the sweater on, I decided I needed the extra row and carried on, and felt good about it.

The yarn is Rowan Felted Tweed, which is my favorite yarn to date. I've dreamed of a new knitting blog called "A Year of Felted Tweed", as I could use this yarn constantly and never get bored. I'm so happy to own this cardigan, and will be wearing it out before the winter weather ends (when is that??).
