After much deliberating, I decided upon a cotton eyelet cardigan from Rowan. Surprisingly, I haven't knitted much from Rowan even though I subscribe to the magazine. So, I found a lovely bright blue cotton yarn (Tahki Cotton Classic) in my stash. I think it will be a nice simple sweater pattern to work with...it's knit in pieces, not in the round. I think this is best for cotton, personally, because the seams will give it more stability and keep it from losing it's shape too much.
I'm having fun working on it, though I'm only half way through the left front and it's already been a week. I've realized I shouldn't pressure myself when my knitting isn't as fast as I'd like it to be or when I'm not knitting as often as I think I should. I tend to feel guilty for not finishing something quickly...but then, I have to remind myself...this is supposed to be fun, right? :)
