The first project is a necessity, as I really need a new pair of gloves. I do hope to have them done in time for Christmas. Not my favorite thing to knit (I think I have issues using double point needles, and yes I've tried all the other techniques: magic loop, two needle, etc, but I find the dpn's give me the best rhythm, I just don't like using them). Totally worth it, as it's so nice to have gloves that fit me!
However, I decided to cast on a new cardigan for me! (not like I don't have 40 already cast on!).

This is a remake. I made this pattern before, and it was one of my favorite. (hmmm... notice the past tense?). Yep, it's a wee bit too small for me these days. I know it was a fast project and I had this beautiful Green Mountain Spinnery Mountain Mohair recently frogged from my October Frost (also due to sizing issue... do you see a trend here?). I don't have enough of the Mountain Mohair to go up in size on the October Frost, but I have plenty to do the Eyelet & Cable Cardigan.

I think I can get this swatch to the sleeve cap shaping today...
