Hmm…So this has been a good and a bad project. It is currently not finished and I am dreading having to take out the entire collar to re-do it in order to get the rest of the pattern done (collar, button band, button holes and buttons). I also have to take out the sleeves and re-sew them in if I want this lumpy cardigan to look a little less lumpy :(
The one thing that I have enjoyed about this project has been knitting the cables. It is always good fun to do cables, because they look so nifty! Other than that I kinda want to throw this pattern out with all the other crap patterns I’ve come across and tried. For example, I will never try another Vogue Knits pattern, NEVER! I’ll stick with the classics, as my mom says, “I never liked American-style set-in sleeves, only do Old English/Scottish/Irish/Nordic patterns with raglan sleeves.” Mom is always right…I should have listened before I bought this sweater pattern and the expensive wool that goes with it! I will say that the toque patterns from the same company are great patterns and their wool is really nice.
