I feel like I’ve been doing just that. I’ve worn it to book club, to kids’ appointments, when visitors were here, and just plain around because I LOVE it. I finally finished this sweater near the end of April, save for its buttons. I didn’t get buttons when it was done because it was still Buy-Nothing Challenge Month for me. Right now I just have one button sewn on at the top. Unfortunately I don’t have enough of that button (purchased at the craft thrift shop in January) for the entire sweater. Maybe I’ll get lucky and find more (I need 9 buttons total, I have four). For the knitterly among the readers, here are the stats:
Tangled Yoke Cardigan, by Euni Yang, Fall 2007 Interweave Knits
Yarn: Elizabeth Lavold Silk Wool in Grey
Needles: US 5s, 4s
Other Stuff: The yarn, while lovely to touch and wear, was a bit annoying because it broke several times while I was working on the sweater from me simply trying to pull more yarn and once because L3 ran into it. I didn’t do the three-needle bind off for the collar because I didn’t want to purchase 40″ size 1 (or was it size 2?) needles for one stinkin’ row. I simply sewed it down instead, which worked fine, I think.
Did I mention that I love this sweater? I’m so glad that I ended up going for the gray yarn. I love having this classic piece for my wardrobe. So who knew–L2 still knits! I have actually been doing a bit of knitting behind the scenes. I hope to have several FINISHED projects to show in the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, I should get back to the knitting… and writing a letter of indignation to Wegmans.
