Love this yarn. Soft and pretty. I think this cardigan is going to look amazing.
I knit a few rows yesterday and noticed a mistake in one of the cable sections. I think I will rip and start over, otherwise it will bother me forever.


I have a feeling that my knitting is not matching the gauge in the swatch I knit. I may have to start this over.


Starting over.


Had to go up two needle sizes (now # 9). Gauge seems to be right. It’s a go!


Now that this is done and blocked… I love the pattern, but the sleeves are too wide. I wish I had read other people’s comments on that. Also, I think I made this a size too big for me. I guess I’m smaller than I thought I was! Between the sleeves and the sizing issue, this will be a great lounging cardigan for wearing at home but I don’t think I’ll be leaving the house with it on. Learned a lot from knitting this. Now on to the next!
