Stitches are stacking

With fewer distractions on the needles, I've had some more time to devote to the Empire Line Cardigan
It doesn't look (or feel like it) but I am making progress.  I have to keep reminding myself, it is the back - the biggest piece, and after it's done, the other pieces will go more quickly.
I have just passed a major decrease row, so things already picking up. And soon I'll be at the underarms where there's more decreasing.

Hey ... it's already looking up!
And I do love the way those lace horseshoes are stacking up.

The color is so amazing...almost drenched if you know what I mean. As Mildred said above, very rich! And the horseshoes are so pretty. I love this.

You are right , the other pieces will go quickly. I love the pattern and the color choice. So striking. It shows of the cable work and stitches perfectly.
