I'm finally finishing up my warm weather sweater I planned on knitting last summer. I received the yarn as a gift from mother's day a year ago, and knit the bulk of it while on retreat this Spring. The pattern is Gemini by Jane Richmond and it is free and very easy to follow. It's meant for a DK weight yarn and while the Hempathy by Elsbeth Lavold is considered DK I thought the fabric was a bit too loose at gauge. To remedy this I added a lace weight strand of Malabrigo merino yarn and now I love the resulting fabric and the color variation the Malabrigo lends. Of course this addition means I have to handwash the sweater, but I think it will be worth it in the long run. I have about 4 inches left to knit which is so close and yet so far as it's boring stockinette (good TV knitting though.) Then just a few rows and some ribbing to finish off each of the sleeves and I'm done. This is my first knitted warm weather top and I can't wait to wear it. Now, if it would just warm up already, but alas Spring in Minnesota is temperamental to say the least.
