Sweaters 2013 - Sweater #2

I started my new sweater for my Sweaters 2013 Project AKA Knit Something.  The pattern for this cardigan is the Olive Basket cardigan.  It has no buttons or fastenings of any kind (so that's something I don't have to figure out).  It's knit from the bottom up, and I know from experience that I tend to stall out once I hit the place where the fronts and back divide on this type of construction.  In order to avoid this known issue of mine, I'm going to start with the sleeves, so that when I hit the fronts and back, they'll be all I have left.  I don't know if it will work or not, but it seems to me that momentum might just get me past where I tend to stall.
When this pattern came out, sometime last Fall, I knew it would work with one of my favorite colors of Madelinetosh yarn - Cove.  The variegated blues, browns, and muddy greens should work well in the simple lines of this design.  I'm using the Merino DK yarn base for this.  You can see in the photo, the start of a sleeve cuff (the other cuff is just visible at the right), and you can see what a weird color Cove really is.  I can't explain why I love it, I just do.

It is a strange colour when you try to describe it isn't it but in the picture it's just gorgeous; like looking around a beach through a kaleidoscope! And Madelinetosh too - what's not to like.
