Paul Smith Cardigan In Progress

The Paul Smith Cardigan is the project I chose to work on during my move.  Luckily, I have other projects chosen as well as this one is progressing so quickly.  I think that elves must be sneaking in while I'm packing or sleeping and working a few rows.  What you see is barely three days of knitting when I could find time.  I have another inch or two to go before I start the armhole shaping.

I'm following this pattern as written.  I taking a chance here as I've never seen a proper picture of the finished sweater, only a sketch.  Normally I would never knit a bottom band with 3-inches of ribbing, but hey, why not mix up my sweater knitting a bit?  I'm trying it.  I might like it.  Time will tell. 

The yarn, Debbie Bliss Rialto 4-ply is wonderful to work with.  If I still like it as much by the time I finish this cardigan I might have to use it again.
