This FO only took a year

I just couldn't bring myself to finish the seaming.
Now that I have, I really don't know why.


This is Sirdar Cardigan #8872 knit with Sirdar Ocean.

The yarn is a cotton/nylon ribbon yarn.

Makes for a very interesting texture but is not my favorite to knit with.

Back to your regularly scheduled programming now.....

I love it! I like the "flirty" look on you!

Well done you...you're fast becoming my inspiration with all these FOs!

Very nice, though the black doesn't show off the pattern very well in the photo. Still basic black is a good color for a garment.

Did I know before that you had done the Eyelet Cardi? I did that one too.

Why thank you :-) It really fits and feels nice and squishy. It is surprisingly heavy (weighty).

I know the photo doesn't show the detail much, but it really is fun and flirty. I knit this to wear in the orchestra pit so no one can see it anyway. I just hope the keys don't get stuck in the fabric!

I was thinking that that is a perfect sweater for your profession. It looks cute on you.
