Two for Two

I am pleased to report that I finished my February sweater over the weekend! I honestly cannot believe that I didn't procrastinate until Leap Day (since, you know, it's an extra February day) only to finish it at 11:59p.m.

Yarn: Patons Classic (Cascade 220 would be a great substitution)
Needle: US 7
Buttons: Vintage MOP buttons purchased from Moondance Designs at Warm Hearts Yarn

My Favorite Cardigan (ravelry link) from Custom Knits by Wendy Bernard has been on my needles for over two years now. So, not only did I complete a sweater, I completed a WIP!

I am enjoying the mid-length sleeves, cables, and vertical ribbing around the waist. Although it is not very exciting, the color is typically a staple in my wardrobe, so I'm hoping to get much use out of this three-season sweater. I do love the buttons--all one-of-a-kind, vintage mother-of-pearl.

My reward for finishing this project (besides having a new garment, of course): getting to cast on using some beautiful NEW YARN for my March project! :)


  1. Thanks, Marianne! It was a work-in-progress that took over two years to complete!
