Vintage Sweater

I am using some GORGEOUS yarn to knit myself a sweater.  I purchased the yarn from a fellow Raveler for about half the price of retail, since she was destashing.  It is comprised of alpaca, wool, and angora and is called Fresco,  by Classic Elite Yarns.  I'm using a size #3 needle and am getting about 6 stitches per inch.  The pattern is Vintage Pink Cardigan from Interweave Knits, Spring 2005, and designed by by Norah Gaughan.  It is a lovely pattern with some cable interest on the button band.

Can you see the angora halo in the second picture.  It is stunning.
