Ever since I saw this Adrienne Vittadini ad I've wanted to recreate the cardigan:

Adrienne Vittadini ad in winter 2000 Vogue Knitting

Don't like the sleeve seams, so I'm doing raglan sleeves instead. I cast on for the hood yesterday and started the raglan increases today. Right now the sweater is just a boring black blob and not photogenic.

The Bulgarian Deni yarn I'm using for this Everyday Cardigan knitalong sweater could not be called high quality by any stretch of imagination. So far I've encountered three knots and a couple of unspun spots in one hank. It knits up fine, though. The fabric is soft, drapey and airy, exactly what I wanted to achieve.

Update. April 3

I must have been very tired yesterday 'cause I forgot to mention that new Knitty is out. As usual, there are several patterns I want to make: rosebud, lite brite and cut your teeth.
