Next Project...a Sleeveless Shell

I've been looking through various pattern books at my LYS and came across this darling simple shell pattern:
Ann Norling - Quick Knit Sleeveless Shell #50

You'll notice in the picture that the yarn used for the middle shell looks familiar. :) It's the same yarn I had used for my cropped cardi vest from my previous post.

I plan on knitting the sleeveless shell on the right with the seed stitch border at the bottom, neckline, and armholes.

I found this beautiful yarn at Michael's:
Patons Shetland Chunky Tweed in Sea Ice color

Which will go with my latest sewing creation:
Brown and blue floral sweater knit cardigan

I can't wait to get started on this knitting project. This will be my first attempt at a knitting project where I am not using the suggested yarns. I knitted a test swatch/gauge with this Patons yarn and it came out pretty close. BTW, if you see this yarn...touch it and give it a squeeze. It's sooo soft.
