fall knitting

The weather suddenly took a turn for cool here a couple of weeks ago, reminding me that I really need to get more lightweight sweaters into my wardrobe rotation.  To that end, I cast on this little number:

Navy, of course, is one of those colors that is impossible to photograph, so this will be an interesting project to blog about.  The end goal here is a fairly simple wrap sweater, with a little cable edging to keep things interesting.  I’m using a top-down raglan construction, which has the advantage of being quick and mindless–I want this sweater done and out and about soon!  The yarn is a 25% angora/75% lanbswool mix.  Soft.  Super soft.  I’m pretty sure it’s softer than a fair amount of cashmere I’ve felt over the years.  The fabric itself is fairly fine, with a gauge just a shade short of 6 sts/in.  And so far I’m loving it!
