Another Pink Sweater, As Promised!

Featherweight Pop Rocks 
I cast on for a new pink cardigan this weekend!  I actually cast on for three different sweaters, but the first two didn't work.  The first plan was to knit a cardigan, but I couldn't get gauge quite right.  This was one of those rare patterns where you have to have both stitch gauge and row gauge, and I couldn't get the two to match up.  Then I cast on for a pullover and was knitting along happily, right up until I realized I didn't have enough yarn to actually finish it.  So, I started over again.  For my third attempt, I went back to a tried and true pattern - Featherweight Cardigan.  I've knit three of these (one was a gift), and they are in pretty regular rotation in my cooler weather wardrobe, so I know another one will be useful.

I'm knitting it in Madelinetosh Tosh Sock in Pop Rocks.  I'm using the pink needles again, it's living in the pink bag, but just to mix things up, I'm using blue stitch markers (they're hidden in the roll in the photo).  I can't become predictable!
