A Sweater in Ten Days!

It's all finished and blocked!  This is my Beccs Cardigan, knit for the Q3 KAL for Eat.Sleep.Knit.  It's knit in Dream in Color Classy in the Juliette's Blush colorway.  I used exactly 900 yards according to the weight (you've got to love worsted weight sweaters!)  I chose this pattern because it was worsted weight, it was top down, and it has no additional bands to add on after knitting the main part of the sweater.  The cabled front bands are worked with the fronts as you go.  I did alternate skeins as I knit it to make sure there was no hand dyed color weirdness, but I'm honestly not sure if I even needed to.  These skeins were really consistent colorwise; more consistent than Madelinetosh or Malabrigo tend to be.  I tend to overlook Dream in Color for those other two, but knitting this sweater reminds me I really shouldn't.
It was a fun sweater to knit, with the cables adding just enough interest to an otherwise simple design.  It's also something I think I will wear quite a bit.
