WIP since 2009

Finally finishing my Ropes and Picots cardigan that I started in 2009. I was getting the urge to make myself a sweater and realized I already have one almost done. Granted it's the middle of winter and this is a spring sweater...but, I vowed to finish it before starting anything new. I started knitting on it again last Friday and finished 99% of the knitting on it this morning. It's currently blocking right now.

All that's left is seaming and creating the picot edge that runs up both fronts and the neck edge. Haven't finished a sweater for myself in quite some time...can't wait to model finished product.

Latest FO

Yarn: Knitpicks - Wool of the Andes
Needles: Size 8
Fit: 38" w, 1.5 inches of positive ease.
Notes: It took me several tries to get the neck band done. First time I miscalculated the mid point for the point of the v neck reduction, Second time I picked up along the edge of the second shoulder seem (since the pattern states to sew the second seem after the neck band).  Third time was the charm.
