New project

I started work on the cashmere cardigan on Wednesday and am about a third of the way up the back. I really like working in cashmere as it has really nice stitch definition although it is prone to splitting, I'm already a little worried about whether this will make it difficult to pick up the stitches for the collar. The pattern is from the Debbie Bliss Baby Knits book and I plan to add a shawl collar like the one I saw at Stash at the weekend.

Although I'm not usually one for swatching at great length (or at all sometimes) I actually knitted, washed and blocked a proper gauge swatch as the owner of the yarn shop warned me that the gauge would change after washing.
