The best cardi ever! I love everything about it, the colour, the cables, the Aran yarn and the fit. It’s my very favorite!

Jan 29th: knitting complete! Cardigan is now soaking in Lavender scented Eucalan.
Jan 21st: hours and hours of stockinet te stitch for body are done! I’m ready to attach the sleeves tonight and start the yoke.
Jan 17th: Sleeves are completed and the body ribbing is now done.
Jan 14th: Frogged the sleeves for a second time because I decided that the sleeves were not matching well enough. I am now knitting from two balls of yarn per sleeves as I should have been doing from the beginning!!!
Dec 28th: Cast on two sleeves at a time on long circular needle.
Modifications for sleeves: the sleeves were way to big for my arms so I changed the increases. Increased every 10th round till I had 50 sts on the needles. Then increased every 8th rounds till I had 60 on the needles. This sleeves fits much better and still has room for another layer underneath.
