Surprise! A finished project that isn’t a monster! This is Mary Townsend’s Rogers-Esque Cardigan. The torso knitted up beautifully, but the arms somehow ended up being far too large. Ah, well. I could try to selectively shrink them with a hair dryer, maybe? Well, regardless.
Pattern woes aside, it’s the only jacket/sweater I’ve ever made that even fits me remotely, and I’m loving it. Especially now that the weather’s starting to turn and I can get away with wearing it. If you recall, I had a few posts about making my own yarn. Well, this is one of the things I made with it! I’m really happy with this thing, having been solely responsible for it since it was a greasy fleece back in May. Next time, all I need to do is write the pattern and whittle the buttons, maybe raise and shear the sheep, and I’ll have the entire process covered, but I think I’m satisfied with it as is.
But hey, Common Ground is coming up soon. If I leave there with another fleece in hand, don’t be surprised. Now more pictures!
