Ever since I first saw 'A Cardigan For Arwen' in the Winter 2006 issue of Interweave Knits I've wanted to knit it. I've toyed with swatches and yarn but always delayed casting on. I don't know why maybe because it has a hood and I'm not a big fan of hoods. Whatever the reason, I'm finally over it. I cast on on Saturday. I finished the back this morning. I love it. :-)

I'm using Cascade 220 in colour 7813 and I'm getting gauge on the needles recommended in the pattern. I didn't mind the plain stocking stitch for the back. I've mentioned before that I quite like stocking stitch and it goes quickly when I listen to podcasts or audio books while knitting. But it is good to have the cable, arm shaping and hood looming on the horizon. :-)
