A finished sweater

Well, I did it...I finished my sweater! I'm over the moon with excitement about it!!

Pattern: Greenfield Cardigan from New England Knits book
Yarn: Cascade Ultra Pima
Colorway: Juniper
Yardage used: ~ 4.2 skeins
Needles: Knit Picks Circulars US 6 (neck) then US 8
Ravelry Page

I won't bore you with all the details. I mean how much garter stitch can I truly document. I heard from others that they would have brought the neckline in, so I used a US 6 for the first few rows, it seems to do the trick. I also wanted it a bit longer, so I modified the waist line to not only take my shape into consideration but add in length there.

I learned how to use magic loop for the sleeves. I will never go back to DPN's again! I also used the chart for the leaves. This was another first for me, as when I only had a chart I would write it out.

I've worn it twice already, in between gave it a good wash with SOAK. Love that stuff!

It got finished well before my deadline of June 30th with The Loopy Groupies. Maybe I can sneak in another project for Lil Miss!
