Nice work, and thanks for posting all of the photos. I wasn't totally sure about knitting this one, but now that I've seen it from all angles, it's on the list!

Great cardi, did you have trouble with the curling?
 I've been wanting to do this but I can't deal with that much moss stitch..

It's beautiful!  Love the color you chose.  I'm another knitter with a love/hate relationship with the moss stitch.  Love the look, hate knitting it.

I know nothing of knitting, but I think it's a lovely sweater!

also, WTH do you do with your hands when you pose for a photo?! I've got no idea where to put them, that's why it always looks like I'm trying to grab at something sorry

You are very pretty, you needn't worry about it much : ) but if you really want tips,
You can:
a) actually hold something, like a flower, a little purse, a handrail
b) twirl your hair (this can either show sleves nicely or bunch them up funny depending on the garment)
c) clasp them together behind your back
d) thow them in the air in rejoicing that your project is done
e) stick them in your pockets, either jacket or pants/ skirt
f) stick one on your hip & on in a back pocket
g) brandish your knitting needles menacingly/ with pride
h) imitate Vanna White and point out the finer features

above all have fun! : ) Or barring that find a model

Thanks again for all the comments, I'm all warm and fuzzy now (not including actual warmth and fuzziness from cardigan) Smiley

hahaha that's hilarious, I'll take those suggestions into account Wink

Great cardi, did you have trouble with the curling?
 I've been wanting to do this but I can't deal with that much moss stitch..

The curling isn't too bad, before blocking it was almost a tube! I only steam blocked the cardigan for now but I intend to wet block it soon. Also some people have knit this cardigan in stockinette instead of moss stitch, though I wanted to keep the texture so I perservered.

Gorgeous!  I have several WIPs going on, but this cardi is definitely on my list!  Just out of curiosity, how many skeins of Silkroad Aran did you end up needing?

I used 7.5 balls of the silkroad aran.. I used the silkroad aran itself for seaming the sweater but it broke 3 or 4 times along the way, so next time I'll use matching tapestry yarn or something and spare myself the pain of freaking out when the yarn breaks in the middle of seaming!

Very cute!  This is like the magic cardigan- it looks good on everyone I've seen that knit it.  I'm in the middle of it now, and every one I see bolsters my spirits a little more!

You can put your hand on the hips or waist. It works for me. I love your cardigan.
