Purple Cardigan

Everyone around me is bemoaning the continuing cold weather. I am bemoaning the approaching warm weather and the attendant close of wool-knitting season in the south. Once the mercury hits 70 degrees it's nothing but cotton, linen, and hemp until next winter. Thus, I'm blowing through my wool projects as quickly as I can; I just finished this one a couple of days ago. I'm very happy with it, as it shows my advancing knitterly skills (in detailed ways that no non-knitter would even believe could matter to a sane person) and my increasing ability to pick projects I'll actually want to wear when they're done.

It is indeed a beautiful sweater. I don't know what the detail is you refer to but like the ribbing around the buttons and bottom and the weaving pattern on the front. Can't reallly make out what is on the arms. In sum, and A+.

Oh la la. I do love this sweater. I know where you can find some continued winter weather if that's what you really want. A foot of new snow on the 2nd of March is certainly not for those awaiting the 70 degree weather.
