Kujaku cardigan WIP
Right now the sleeves seem to be taking forever...

This is Noro Kujaku color 20 from www.yarn.com at $5 a skein. I bought 18 skeins originally and you can see what I am down to now. I think I am knitting it a bit tight at 5.5 stitches per inch on size 7 needles. The butterfly is in contrasting Kujaku (22 I believe).

The Mod Squad was here - Photo Resized. Pictures should be no more than 500 pixels wide.

That is very lovely. I suppose that is what they call "self-striping" yarn? I also love the butterfly. The way the yarn is variegated, it almost makes it look like "self-butterflying" yarn!
