Slowly but surely I'm moving along on the body of this long cardigan. I'm about halfway between the underarm and starting the pockets right now. I don't know for sure, but I don't think I've ever done pockets before on a sweater so this will be a new thing for me. This cardigan is at the point where it's easy to pick up and put down, which is nice. There's still some shaping details going on even at this point, but they're easy to remember and I don't feel like I need to spend 5 minutes re-reading my notes to figure out what I'm supposed to be doing before I start knitting. That's one thing this designer (Heidi Kirrmaier) does really, really well in my opinion: small, almost invisible details that give a perfect fit on a garment that looks like its effortlessly simple. The simplicity of the finished garment is what makes it so versatile and wearable, but the subtle details really make all the difference in how it fits. While you're knitting it, there's sometimes a lot to keep up with, but the finished sweater is definitely worth it.

I really like how the seed stitch is turning out!
