Camden's second sweater of the season is the Paint Me a Sweater by Elena Nodel. It was originally published as a free pattern under a publisher no longer in business (why am I blanking on the name???), but it's now offered as a free Ravelry download, which is much better, aha!
I had liked it when I first saw it, because it seemed a bit hip - and simple, which is sometimes nice. I do find that it's a quick knit, in that it's stockinette, but it sadly is hurting my hands to use the size 4 needles, even though they're wood (Karbonz Dreamz...I was hoping to partly remedy the hand issue with wood circulars, but 'tis NOT the case). I ordered from Handsome Fibers, as I keep doing with my Karbonz needles, and they are AWESOME with shipping super fast!!! I totally recommend them! I do definitely enjoy using the needles, but I have such mad hand issues now that it probably wouldn't matter what I DO use.
The sleeve increases took my forever, partly because of hand issues, partly because it was hard to sneak in knitting (crazy baby is having a hard time getting to sleep at night) and partly because there are two knit rounds between each increase round. The sweater doesn't have much length, though, so, that's nice!
