a huge thanks goes out to...

you!!


yes. you. remember this day? when i seriously considered frogging this lovely cardi? **gasp!the horror!** and i had completed quite a bit too! remember?

well you all gave me the kick in the pants i needed to complete this beautiful little cardi.
i think one of the things that had me frustrated with this project was more my fault. i almost always have many, many projects on the needles... and that makes for a bit of confusion when i've set this particular project down for a bit. but i do love the outcome!
so. soooo much!


it's so darling. and handsome. and sophisticated.. and well yah. c.u.t.e!



i'm super happy with this f.o.

the deets:
pattern: gramps cardigan by kate oates
yarn: knit picks swish dk. in squirrel. i bought 5 skeins for the project, but i totally have lots left over. maybe 2 skeins?
needle: 3.5mm & 4.0mm


and it's really because of you that i actually finished it! and so i thank you. and the little recipient does too ;)
and of course, i think the buttons really make it ;) don't you?


do you have a neglected wip that is calling out to be finished? you should finish it up. it will so be worth it. your yarn will thank you. and it will free up more cables for more projects! yippee for that :) lol.

coffee is especially yummy today... come chat! i love your company. xo

  2. I am astounded at how clever you are at knitting - every piece you turn out looks shop bought - if it weren't for your in progress shots I'd think you were telling tall stories!!!

  3. Every time I see one of these sweaters completed, I fall in love with the pattern a little more. When the time comes for me to have kids, you better believe this is at the top of the queue.

  7. Oh, it is sooooo cute, Rebecca! I'm glad you conquered that WIP. I have more than a few hibernating projects taking up needle space...maybe it's time I picked one up...Thanks for the inspiration - and sharing this sweet FO!

  9. It's adorable. So happy you finished it. The buttons do give it that extra "umph".
    I may be facing the same issue soon. Put aside the Spring garden Tee for my niece, and I am planning on finishing it as soon as I am done with the KAL sweater, but I can not remember where I was....and it's the sleeves....some serious back-tracking is required...wish me luck!

  12. I love it! This cardigan has been on my faves for a long time. It is definitely on the list for the cabled sweater my oldest requested. The style is right up his alley.
