Cardigan Completed

My cardigan is completed, after ten months of knitting fun. Which is sort of impressive seeing as I don't knit very often at all, and that I've never made anything quite to this scale (except for the unfortunate electric blue poncho that proved unwearable but taught me a lesson about me NEVER again wearing ponchos or chunky wool.) Back when I started the cardigan, I predicted it would turn out wonky and though my prediction came true, it did far less than I would have imagined. The biggest problem is that the buttons are spaced haphazardly, and indeed I don't know what I was thinking. I've decided to ignore this, however, and revel in what's right instead (which definitely isn't the ribbing along the edges either, but alas). What is right is that the cardigan fits, and that it's even wearable. That the sleeves aren't too long, are even the same length, and there are no holes anywhere from dropped stitches. Never mind that the cardigan looks a bit lumpy, and makes me look a bit lumpy, for what can one expect from a cardigan? I am very pleased. The pattern came from here (though we will not talk about how their model is skinnier than mine), and I thank Erin Smith for her learned counsel.

    Not unlike the original, I think the slight variation on the buttons is quite unique. sue x

    Thank you for the support. "Slight variation" indeed. I am also "quite unique". xo
