It's Snowing...

My last post was hopeful for Spring but it's snowing, blizzard conditions.  We've gotten over a foot so far.  Unfortunately I don't knit fast enough to get it done this weekend.  So, I'm not giving up on my Winter knitting.  I've found Queensland Collection Book 7.

The cardigan is called Florence

What I like about it is it's a comfy cardi with a tie belt.  Lots of great details and classic in style.
Now to the yarn...

Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage

A few colors I'm thinking about are:

It's superwash merino wool.  The reviews say it relaxes after it's washed and dried.  Because of this, I'm going to make the size small.  I'm right between sizes and it looks relaxed.  Really don't want it to look like it should fit my husband.  Honestly, I'd like to make it in a fun color but really like the idea of having classic clothes that will last many seasons.  Thunderstorm looks like a nice bluish-black and Composition looks like a variegated gray, Charcoal is a blue-gray.  All are probably pretty classic but Thunderstorm looks a little more trendy.  What are your thoughts?
