UPDATE: Well, I finally finished the sweater in late October, at which point, it felt a little ridiculous to wear a short sleeve, bright green, polka dot sweater. Thanks to my loose knitting, the cardigan turned out too big - aaargh!

Well, I wasn’t going to throw away all that work, so I turned it into a semi-wrap design. This works pretty well. It’s not perfect, but at least it’s wearable!*

I love the polka dots!

This is my very first multi-colored project, so I am moving quite a bit more slow than I normally do. I actually had a couple of projects that needed to get done, so it has been sitting neglected in my living room for quite some time. Now that the weather is turning, I have the urge to pick up my needles again!

Because the mini-polka-dots in the ribbing use the alternate color on only one row, there are going to be quite a few ends to weave in, and I am not looking forward to it!
