DONE

At last! And just in time for spring, heh heh. Oh well, it'll be a great fall color too...


Pattern: Transitions Yoke Cardigan
Yarn: Patons Classic Merino in Moss Heather
Needles: size 6 circ's (16" and 29")

Just needs a wash and a good blocking to even out those button bands, then I'll add the buttons. The silver buttons I tried at first were too small, and not quite the look I wanted. I ended up going with a slightly larger button in a shade that's close to the yarn color - I have one up there at the top but will take some better pics once they are all in place.

I made a few modifications - if you can call it that, given that the pattern is more like a general recipe than a specific set of instructions - including more garter rows, wider button bands, and shorter, wider sleeves. So excited to have finished a sweater for me!!

Now, I'm off to choose my next project. It's spring break this week, and even though I have a massive amount of work to do I don't actually have to go anywhere. This bodes very well for my stash - and the likelihood of another FO in my future :)

That turned out great and a cozy sweater might actually come in handy today though this weekend was short sleeves weather.
