What's Good Is Good!

I met Mathew Gnagi, a young designer in New York several weeks ago at Annie And Company in NYC. We were talking last weekend and he showed me a recent design of his. I bought the design then and there. Called Carlito Cardigan, it's magnificent.

This weekend, I bought Malabrigo worsted in dark green to make the cardigan. I am not usually a fan of cables. I can't wait to finish it. Another customer at the shop at the same time made the same decision. SHE is making it for herself in pink. This is one knitalong I am doing at 100 miles an hour.

Check it out. Yes, the pattern is on Ravelry.

Fer sure that's going in my "to-do" list, even tho I can't wear sweaters (I overheat waaaaay too easily). And I'll have to "unfit" the bottom to accommodate my more ample torso. But it looks like it'd be a fun knit and even if it didn't fit me perfectly (nothing ever does, even ready-mades in a store), it would fit someone I know, I'm sure.
