september knitting challenge: terra linda cardigan

my ever-expanding yarn stash is the inspiration for a challenge to myself and to you, dear reader. i am going to attempt to complete at least one new knitting project every month, and i want you to try it with me. each month i'll start a new project; you can do the same one, or you can choose one of your liking. i like choosing a project that feels right for the month. september is when things start cooling down and nights might get a touch chilly in my part of the world, so it's an ideal time for a cozy-but-not-bulky cardigan. rosemary (romi) hill's terra linda cardigan from knitscene fall 2012 is the perfect september cardigan with its 3/4 sleeves (warm but not too warm) and lace yoke (rustic without being bulky). i'm knitting mine in stitch nation's washable ewe in zinnia (a bright pink), but you can use the malabrigo suggested (how luxurious!), or you could use a different worsted weight wool. i scored a ton of stitch nation yarn in a clearance at joann fabrics, so you'll probably see so many stitch nation projects in the coming months that you'll swear i must have a sponsorship.

to stay on track for an end-of-the-month finish, make sure you pick your project, buy your supplies, check that gauge, and cast on this week. 

want to take the september knitting challenge? leave a comment below with your project stats, and i'll link to any blog posts or ravelry posts you send me. send me pictures of your progress as we go, and i'll incorporate those into future blog posts.
