Cookin' the cardi...and a book

Some knit projects just really get me going. I started a Noro cardigan a little over a week ago, and I'm obsessed with it. My penchant for start-itis mid-project? Not happening with this one. I want to see this sweater done so I can wear it! The pattern is "Scarlett," the cover piece from the new Noro Joy book. It is making me very happy.

This picture is from the beginning of the sweater, but at least you can see the beautiful colors present in this yarn. I'm about 16" up the body now. I just bound off for the armholes and am working the top part of the back now. (I'm totally not following the pattern, as I've been working it all in one piece so far.)

On another knitting note, my friend Cosy has written a book called, Knit One, Embellish Too, which will be out next month. It looks very cool. Cosy's work is very creative, so I can't wait to see what all is in the book. If you're looking for a new knitting book to enjoy, check it out at her blog. (If you're interested in getting it, ordering it directly through Cosy at her blog would be a great help to her...I always try to support crafters and artists directly whenever possible, so it's just a thought! :))
