C'est fini!


Hi, Knitters,
My Calligraphy Cardigan is finally done. I am in love. I'm pretty sure it is one of the best things I've knit. The fit is perfection and it only took me a quick year and a half to finish. Ha.

I've cast on for another cardigan this morning. I'll be back in a couple of years wearing it proudly.

Happy weekend to you all.
best, susie

I can't believe how fast you finished those sleeves! It looks great, a perfect "jeans sweater".

Lovely sweater - nice job! - I really think I want to knit Caligraphy next and I'm asking Santa to gift me the yarn. I'm thinking "Steamer Trunk" maybe? Like the black but it's too difficult for me to see the stitches.

Not only do you have a great cardigan on, you are wearing the Danskos that I've been coveting!!!

It looks great! I, myself, am trying to finish the Snowbird Cardigan that I was planing on finishing during the Ravelympics but it was a lofty goal. But all I have left is the body of the sweater and I plan on finishing it before I start anything else.

I have issues with commitment to large projects like sweaters ....I guess the fact I tore out 3 complete sweaters because they didn't fit right might have something to do with that. :)

I have several cardigans waiting for me to get back to them. :/ Someday! I love the header photo of your socks. I've begun saving leftovers to make myself a pair someday. Your new cardi is lovely! samm@rav

Hooray! It looks fantastic - and you are so cosy by the fire in your new cardigan and your knitting clogs. So cute. I love the colour of your next sweater. I also love that you had the buttons on before you finished the sleeves. Happy belated Thanksgiving :)

Such a great, wearable, cardigan! Nicely done : ) And, those Danskos are awesome! Wish they came in a size 12!
