Something New...

I got my Ravelry invite on Thursday, and spent the entire day on the floor of my living room organizing my stash, my projects, and my photos. I ended up, based on the advice of ravelers, frogging my $1.50 cardigan, in hopes of designing something a little more fitting.
Friday I sat down with a ball of yarn, size 4 circs, and a pad of graph paper. It's Sunday night, and I've finally come out of a pretty severe knitting kick with two cardigan fronts, and the first 5" of the cardigan back. It's a fitted cardigan, with slipped stitch rows in a herringbone pattern.

This photo gives you a better idea of the cardigan's shape. It's quite a bit smaller than I want it to be at the moment, but the knitted gauge and blocked gauge are very different, and I'm hoping pretty hard the gauge swatch I'm relying on holds true.
