BSA Eyelet Cardigan anyone?
This is a Blue Sky Alpacas pattern, and it's loverly! Please join me!

I bought a kit from kpixie (yarn + pattern). I'm using Blue Sky Cotton in Stone. The yarn is buttery soft and is surprisingly very easy to knit with given that it's 100% cotton. No pain in my hands at all!

Here's a pic of the pattern, as well as my progress pics. I've finished the back and am about 1/3 through the right side. It's a really quick, fun knit so far.

Oh, as you can tell, my eyelets occur every other row. That was an accident at first, but I liked the look so kept it. The eyelets are actually supposed to be every 4th row.

You know I want to! But need to finish my GG first. Yours looks great! The camera does nothing to the color though, huh?

I didn't buy the color on the model. I thought that's what I was ordering, but I wasn't really paying attention to the actual yarn in my kit. I was too caught up in the thrill of ordering

I'm not upset, though--it's still a lovely neutral, which is what I wanted.

I got the color in the kit too - stone.

Cate - honeydew and ink are so different! I really love honeydew! I got a skein of that color in a swap and it is really pretty.

I'll go for it after I get paid. Is the pattern printed or PDF? If it's electronic, I would buy it now and start one with the cotton/acrylic I just bought. If not, I can wait.

Cate, unfortunately it's not a PDF pattern, at least not as far as I've been able to find.

I finished the back! My neckline shaping seems a little more squished than Ang's...but I didn't check my row gauge with this yarn, so.. It might all work out anyway. I ended up using Lion Brand Cotton-Ease. I don't like 100% cotton, so I'm trying this out. It feels mostly like cotton, which I love, but it's not as heavy and the ribbing seems, uhh, ribbier than I get with 100% cotton.
