Finished At Last!

I dawdled over the weekend, procrastinated by looking up how to sew invisible seams, what type of seam to use where... I had to finish off today. I know that most of my issues with knitting this cardigan stem from using variegated yarn, but I think those issues were worth sorting out. For the record, the pattern comes from The Family Knitting Book by James Norburg and the yarn is Elle 4 ply sock wool, 80% wool, 20% nylon. It's going into storage now until I enter it into a competition early next year.

  1. This looks amazing, Jane! I particularly like the way the colours suggest a square yoke. Very, very pretty.

  3. It definitely was Worth The Effort - look how perfectly the variegations line up! - So you were right, if very brave, to make a steek. A bit sad that you can't wear and enjoy it, but that will be a pleasure deferred until after the competition.
