I"m making pretty good progress with the relaxed cardigan and cabled sweater from modern classics. I think I'm going to enjoy wearing both of them.
So far I've done the back, left front, and part of the right front on the relaxed cardigan. From the amount of yarn I've used so far, I would estimate I'm about halfway done. I think after I finish the right front, I'm going to weave the ends of those pieces in and seam the shoulders to cut down on the amount of seaming that will have to be done at the end of the knitting all at once. I HATE seaming.

The back and part of a sleeve of the cabled sweater.

relaxed cardi and a garterlac dishcloth

I am loving the relaxed cardi so far. The yarn is so slinky and nice, I can tell it's going to be a very wearable project. So far I've knitted up 2 out of 13 spools of the fauve. This pic is what I have of the back so far.

Not only am I loving this pattern, i really love the whole modern classics book. I have another pattern started from there too, which I'm going to finish after the cardigan. I ordered the yarn for the cardi on impulse and i want to get it knitted up right away instead of adding it to the stash. :)

After those two projects I already have at least two more picked out from the book to do afterwards. I'm going to get a lot of use out of this book I can tell already!
And...a garterlac dishcloth just for fun! I love that pattern.
