Knit along time!

So the fabulous Shannon over at Luvinthemommyhood has a spring time knit along starting today! The knit along is a Summer Tops Tanks and Tees Knit Along that is just so what I need to get my knitting mojo back.

You can pop on over to her Pinterest board if you need some inspiration; the selection of patterns is just awesome. I wish I had more time to knit :)

Here are some of my favs :)

From top left to bottom right: 1) Biston pattern by Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark 2) Bonny pattern by tincanknits 3)  Etty pattern by Caroline Lang 4) Castle Pullover by Cecily Glowik MacDonald

The pattern I have chosen has been in my favorite list for a long time and I have had the yarn sitting in my stash for over a year! It is high time that I knit this cardigan. I am excited to be knitting a sweater for myself again as my life was full of baby knits for so long. 

The pattern I am going to be knitting is the Abigail Cardi by Cecily Glowik MacDonald and the yarn is Tern by Quince and Co in the colorway Columbine. 

The yarn is zoo soft and squishy and I cannot wait to have a finished cardi to wrap around myself on cool summer nights. 

Well I am off to get swatching and finish winding my yarn. Knitting starts tomorrow :)
