I loved working on this sweater, and I love wearing it! It's got some funky areas, especially the buttonband, it kind of pulls when all the buttons are buttoned, but I don't wear cardigans that way, so that's good :) The yarn is already starting to pill, but it's wonderfully soft, light and warm. I used 6 balls of Rowan Cashsoft 4-ply. I really would like a version in the Felted Tweed, I think it would be a nice addition to my closet!

How pretty and well fitting! Pity about the pilling, but I would put up with that for a good soft feel. :)

Can't access Robby's blog anymore. :(

Look at your Tangled Yoke! It turned out great! I think a tweedy version would be pretty, too.

Great sweater love the yoke. Please tell the story about your cartoon picture. Is it from Strong bad? Also, breastfreeding blog? Still want to talk? I nursed four kids.

okay i should be admiring the sweater - it's a beautiful sweater actually and i love your color choice - but my first thought on seeing the photos was - you have such delicate hands.

i think this would look lovely in the Felted Tweed yarn too. and i'm with you - rarely button up a cardigan.

Monika said...

It looks great! I used this yarn for a shawl and hated that it pilled already while knitting on it.

How you manage to finish so much knitting with a toddler in the house is totally beyond me. Keep up the good work.

Romi said...

I'm just now catching up on blog reads and I can't believe I missed this FO! Stunning! I love that particular color - it looks very wearable! I hope you get lots of use out of it, even if you have to shave the pills off now and then!

Looks like it turned out great! That pattern is on my short list... need to score some yarn for that soon.

Happy knitting-
