The Camp Loopy Project 3 challenged us to knit a project using at least 800 yards of yarn in one month. My first thought... "Yikes!"
But the prize... Wollmeise. So I started searching for a pattern. And searching.
Vitamin D was already on my list of favorite patterns, but I seriously doubted my ability to knit a fingering weight stockinette cardigan in a year, let alone a month. But it was supposed to be a challenge, and with"camp" participation I was able to get 20% off the three hanks of Tosh Sock I would need. So...
In what turned out to be less than 2 weeks (special thanks again to Doctor Who), I present my Madelinetsoh "Ink" Vitamin D.
And I love it!
It's very soft and reminds me of a lightweight denim jacket.
The shaping is all done by yarnovers and short rows. Ingenious design and kept my interest.

Note: I did wet block the swatch, but it lied. The weight of the whole cardigan made the gauge grow like crazy. I actually tossed it in the dryer until it was almost dry after soaking. This shouldn't surprise me with superwash yarn, but I was so proud of myself for actually swatching that it did throw me a bit.
