Knit1 Cropped Cardigan

It may still be 100 degrees out here in lovely Tucson, but as I always still associate back to school with the start of autumn I am gearing up for cool weather knitting. I just got the yarn to make the Summer '06 cropped cardi from Knit1. I am using Lion's Brand Wool-Ease, not the best yarn by any means, but I like their avocado and best of all I like the price ; ) After my last sweater, the Monet Water Lilly Top from Interweave, which cost over $100 to make, I like the less than $20 I spent on the Wool-Ease.

I plan to knit my gauge swatches tonight while watching the BBC adaptation of The Murder Room by PD James. It stars the very sexy Martin Shaw so it should keep my mind off of how much I hate having to check the gauge. I never seem to be able to get it with the needles the pattern calls for! More often than not I find my self running up to purls to get a new pair of Addi Turbos. I think soon I might just end up with one of every possible needle-I have already taken to keeping them in a gardening bucket!
