My Traveling Sweater

 I finally finished my Traveling Sweater  designed by Karen Alfke.  I started knitting on this cardigan using Blue Moon Fiber Arts WooBu, a blend of merino and bamboo, the beginning of February.  The colorway is called Grawk, gray with just a hint of purple and green.  Barb and Tracie of the podcast 2knitlitchicks began a cardigan KAL that started February and the deadline to finish is May 1, 2013. 
I knit a lot, lot, lot of 2 x 2 ribbing. 
Yes a lot of ribbing with short rows. 
 I bought the yarn and pattern at Churchmouse Yarns and Teas on Bainbridge Island a few years back.  This KAL was the push I needed to finally dig this beautiful yarn out of my stash and start knitting.
The sad part of this story is now that it is warming up here in California I'm going to have to wait until summer is over and it cools down before I can actually wear my new sweater.
