for beloved boyfriend i am taking on Habitat, by Jared Flood. i'm using Malabrigo Merino Worsted and the stuff feels fabulous to knit with! it has such a nice squish, although that satisfying feeling is a little lost now that i'm into the cabling. the pattern is well written and relatively easy to follow, although i had to colour-code the symbols on the chart to keep track and i needed more than a full rainbow of colours. it requires some paying attention and a row counter, but other than that it isn't too involved.
