I did it! I finished it and even took pictures -instead of waiting to take "good" pictures when the weather is perfect, and then forgetting to take pictures altogether like I have been doing. I LOVE this cardigan! You know, I think this is the first knitting project that I am completely happy with. I'm usually slightly disappointed by the fit, or the yarn, the drape, or something like that. This time I'm really happy about the whole project.
The yarn is Berrocco Vintage. This line has great colors, a great feel, AND a great price at under $8 a skein! I still have enough left over to make another sweater too. I bought mine at a local shop called In the Making.
You can see my Ravelry notes HERE. The pattern was super easy and a free download. I was a little nervous about the ribbed button band that had to be picked up along the front, but like most things, when I just started it was much easier than I thought it would be. So now I get to start a new project! And shop for a new project! I'm thinking something for spring! I'll let you know what I decide. :) xo, Sam
PS. I wanted it to be noted that I, Samantha Caffee, did finish her daughters first birthday gift 27 days early. I think that's a new world record for me! :)
