I have been knitting as much as I can on my cardigan. it is very easy to get in the zone and just knit away on this project. I have made some good progress in just a week, especially considering that I have been knitting on another project (Diamond Fantasy Shawl) and I finished a sock. It's not very exciting at this point, but I do like to see the inches of cables and lace increase.

I started my Cables and O's cardigan last week. The pattern is in "No Sheep for You" and is being knit by me in cotton - Cotton Glace to be exact, in a very pretty pearl off white. I swatched a lot so I have the stitch pattern memorized already, which makes it a fairly fast knit. Each row, though feels like it takes a while because I am knitting on 266 stitches. My LYS is hosting a KAL for this sweater so I hope that will keep me knitting fast enough to get this sweater finished for wearing this summer.
