Now it's starting to look like a sweater!

I've been working on my Woodstove cardigan.  I had to stop and think for a bit because I'm using a bigger button than the pattern calls for.  Ordinarily this wouldn't be a problem, but for this design, the front bands are knit as you go, which means buttonholes are worked as you go.  Not only would I have to use a different buttonhole, but I would have to refigure spacing for the buttonholes.  To make life easier on myself, I've decided to add buttonloops when the cardigan is all finished.  That way I can make them as big as I need and space them right.
I got a shot of the back of the cardigan as well as the front because the back has this subtle chevron texture.  The pockets (that will go on the front) also have the chevron texture, just to tie it all together.  I'm kind of wishing I already had this sweater knit - it's chilly today and it's just started raining.  We're supposed to get rain all day through all day tomorrow.  Quack, quack!

The chevrons show up beautifully in that yarn - it's going to be gorgeous.
