My snow day is... almost over. I had enormous expectations for the day. I'm not sure how I thought I was going to get my whole house cleaned, bake a million cookies, and photograph my FO's all before the sun dipped down below the horizon (all after sleeping until nearly noon). Hmmm. Oh, ambition. My best frienemy.
Not to be defeated, I did get dressed and downstairs for some FO photos!
Notes: This pattern definitely keeps knitting interesting, which is good, because this is a pretty intensive undertaking. Between the different patterning and the interesting shaping there's little time to feel bored. I absolutely adore the collar. I love the drape. And I love the versatility of this project. My Oblique is not without flaw, in fact, I noticed several pattern mistakes as I was piecing it together, but, I still LOVE the end product. This cardigan is coZy! The sizing in the pattern is REMARKABLY accurate! I knit the small. In haste, I decided to steam block over wet blocking, and I feel it fits perfectly.
A note on the yarn: I will absolutely be buying sweater quantities of Fisherman's Wool again. This wool is exactly what I would want in a sweater wool. It's got great body and texture, and it knits into a beautifully defined fabric. Most notable, it's friendly to the budget at roughly $20 for 1000 yds.
I need to re-do my inside button to eliminate the small pucker I created on the front of my sweater, but otherwise, this one is DONE!
