Here I am, knitting happily away at my Acer cardi. I´m part nervous and part astonished at my own fabulousness, as this is my first real garment knitting project. So far, it is going quite well, although a first washing and blocking of the body showed that this is turning out rather narrow…I guess the yarn is rather thin for this pattern ( colourmarts 100% extra fine merino super dk in absinthe) and I am a tight knitter. Of course I could not be bothered to do a gauge swatch, so I am quite happy this is anywhere near my body measurements…well, I can always wear it open if it really turns out too tight. Photos to come! Promise.

EDIT: Just bought the last cone of absinthe available…Whew! Now here´s to hoping the dyelots are not too different!
