I spent the entirety of last night seaming and sewing-on buttons. In the process, I noticed a pretty major pattern mistake in my double seed stitch. SHIT. No, biggie, it's an asymmetrical cardigan, and the error is near the top of the small panel. I can totally RIP and re-knit. In fact, I could probably get the whole process completed before the weekend.
Lightbulb! Before I slash my seams, let's see how this thing looks.
Huh.... I anticipated a drapey, cape-like cardigan... hence the name. But HERS is definitely a sweater; not a... dress??? I knit all my pieces to the correct gauge and dimensions. Am I really a foot (more) shorter than the model?
Hmmm...maybe I don't hate it... I do kinda feel like I'm walking around in a baby llama blanket.
This is better than sweatpants. Happenstance? Can I pull this off? I tend to dress pretty, well... boring.
It is really, really cozy...
Can we take a minute to marvel at those vintage buttons.... 1930's deco...
I don't know what to do. Mike... no help.

What happens when you lift your arms? It does look cozy.

But you are a HOTT flying squirrel. I think that you need to start a new trend! I am totally diggin it. However, I would NEVER get to wear it down here.

i really like it! If you decide it's too much, you could always hand it down to your much taller sister!

Before I even read what you wrote I thought "Oh, I like that sweater. I should make that!" Keep it! I think it's very stylish and looks super comfy.
