|River Union Cardigan - test knit|
I'm determined to continue challenging myself in this bright and shiny new year and Jennifer's new cardigan is a top-down raglan construction which I've been anxious to try. I wanted to cast this beauty on before the end of 2011 but, as many of you know, I was a little busy finishing up knitted and other hand-made gifts.

On New Year's Eve, I found myself with a bit of breathing space as Christmas was officially done in my house (I'll be posting a blog about my family's Christmas celebration later this week) and gathered all my materials for this cardigan. I'm knitting with a new yarn (to me, that is) which has a nice lofty feel. It's a merino called Super Aussie by the Queensland Collection, and I'm really happy with both the color and the fabric that's developing.
So far, this test knit is humming along without any real hiccups so I expect that I'll come in way before the FO deadline this coming weekend. I'll keep you posted!
