A quick knit & yarn love

I cast off my Saroyan scarf last Saturday afternoon, such a quick knit, it only took me about 5 days of knitting about 1.5 hours a day. I blocked it last Sunday, I kind of suck at blocking but I think the scarf turned out okay.
I can tell you this I'm madly in love with Madeline Tosh yarn, so much so that I joined the Magnolia Society. It'll be the first yarn club I've joined but I can't resist such gorgeous, soft yarn. The first shipment comes sometime this month.

The Featherweight cardigan got frogged because as much as I tried to not think about it the incorrect M1 increases made me angry at myself and I knew I wouldn't want to wear the thing when I finished. So I put it aside and cast on the Minimalist Cardigan from Interweave Knits. The yarn is Berroco Vintage I bought at Stash's NYE sale this past year. It's knitting up well and I love the way seed stitch looks, I keep petting it. The sweater is seamed so I'll be knitting a back piece, a left front, a right front and two sleeves and then seaming them together. This will be my first seamed sweater whenever it gets finished.
