Sweater kick

I am on a serious sweater kick. Maybe it's because I actually got a sweater knitted that fit me, or that it's getting colder, but I just finished another sweater, the Mondo Cable Cardi from Chic Knits, knit in Cascade Eco Duo, a lovely lovely yarn that is 75% alpaca and 25% merino which makes it oh so warm and oh so soft and drapey. I knit a little shorter for the body as called for because alpaca tends to stretch, and I didn't want it down to my knees. The top photo is pre-buttons, and the second is after the buttons were added.
This photo shows the nice color of the yarn better, it does have a very subtle striping effect that isn't too weird.
Now onto the next sweater, you'll have to wait and see!
