Man Sweater, a.k.a. Josh’s Cardigan

I’ve done a lot of swatches, and the fact is the yarn I have for Josh’s sweater is simply too weirdly plied to allow for any texture to come through when knit up.  The end result is pretty awful – a lot of work and nothing to show for it.  However, this does not mean this yarn is not worth knitting up – it really is beautiful, has a soft feel to it when washed, and so the design process will ultimately be very simple – but not without adventures.  I may do diagonal slash pockets and saddle shoulders.  That should keep me busy!  Cast-on is done, and 1×1 ribbing is commenced.  This will carry up the button bands as well, with stockinette in between.
