By God, I did it!



Pattern: My own!!
Yarn: Knitpicks Wool of the Andes Bulky, 6 skeins
Color: Emerald
Started: Two weeks ago? Around March 17, 2007
Finished: April 2, 2007

Based on Barbara Walker's Classic Raglan Cardigan in "Knitting from the Top" with V-neck variation.

Wish you could see how happy I am to be wearing my perfectly fitting, just so happy making sweater, but I spared you the zit!

I was a bit worried last night, as before washing it was a little small, but the sweater relaxed exactly like the swatch did after washing and my assumptions proved true.

I would definitely do this again, but buy one more skein of yarn and take it longer. I do have some left, but will be adding patch pockets when I get a chance.

Next up, setting in Rogue's sleeves, but not tonight, alas; must work!

Have a lovely day!

What a fabulous cardigan. The color is very pretty and it will get a lot of spring time use.
