A knitted summer cardigan

I seem to have been so busy I haven't posted for weeks, most unlike me.. but the warmer weather has drawn me to the garden.
 
In the evenings I have knitted this from the yarn I bought in Porthcawl
It had so many stitches a because of my larger size!!
So I must get back to my diet if only to be able to knit with less stitches
 
 
It was a nice pattern to follow just 4 rows with a purl inbetween. I enjoyed knitting it, knitting is so relaxing.
Now that spring has truly arrived, it's wonderful!
Hope your weather is good too

The sweater is beautiful Chris! Reminds me to get my knitting bag out of the closet.
It is very chilly here today and the Illinois river has flooded in different parts of central IL.
