Last night I finished swatching for my fourth sweater, which will be White Pine by Amy Christoffers. I have been fretting over what sweater to make next, but I think this one will be good because it's a longer cardigan and I certainly don't want to be knitting something that big in summer.
I'm using some yarn I bought at the Madison Knitter's Guild Knit-In that I went to earlier this month. It's called Softie by Kimmet Croft Fibers and it's a 75% wool 25% angora blend. It's listed as a sport weight on Ravelry, but I think it's a lot heavier than that. It knits up like a light worsted or dk yarn. As part of the display at the Knit-In, the yarn was knit up as a Wonderful Wallaby sweater, which calls for a worsted yarn.
The main thing that matters is that I was able to get gauge using the recommended needle size. It makes a somewhat airy fabric, but I think that will be beneficial because I can wear it more often.
