My Latest Knitting Project, I mean Puzzle

I am really excited about this latest design, but I keep thinking about variations I want to do on it before I post the pattern. It is knit in one piece in the round (yet it is a cardigan!) so it is all done in stockinette stitch, knitting every row, with the exception of the K1 P1 rib. The rib trim that goes all the way around are the last rows.

So fun to watch this one emerge as it was in progress.

I am also excited about these photo-shoot-locations accessible by bike only.

I still have the box, so I decided to use them the other day, and here is the result.
