Featherweight Update

I have, indeed, been working on my Featherweight Cardigan. After last attempt's disaster, I knew it needed to be something I loved to make it through. So I decided on stripes, a bit longer length, and to spice it up a bit, I gave the stripes a little life. Currently, I'm working on the collar - the body is done. Then, all I'll need to finish are the sleeves and give it a nice blocking and it'll be ready to wear! I've got to say - I'm really happy with it so far. Which is obvious, because it really hasn't taken me too long to make - I haven't been able to put it down!

365 day 60

Excuse the iPhone photo - it was all I had with me! Like I said earlier, I gave my stripes a little life. They gradually get wider down the cardigan. I increased each pair of stripes by two rows starting with 10 rows each at the top and ending with 20 rows each at the bottom. The bottom pink stripe is done in k3, p2 ribbing, as is the collar, which I am about a fourth of the way finished with. This is one I seriously can't wait to get off the needles!

What are you working on? I'd love to see pictures!
