We've had a looooooooong winter here in the Wenatchee valley, and just in time for it to be over I finished my first major (and well fitting) project!  Behold:


check out my blog for all the specs -
I found the yarn originally as a sweater at Ross, but it was hideous.  However the tag said 60% wool blended w/ silk, alpaca and cashmere.  Couldn't possibly pass it up!


When I was finished unraveling the whole thing I noticed that the MSRP on the original tag was $188.00!  Yikes!  Ah well, it went to a better cause and I'm happy Smiley 
I used Clover size 6 needles until I wore the points off, then I used Addi Lace needles.  I <3 Addis! 
The pattern is the Cable Cardigan from Knit.1 Spring 07.  Weirdly I'd been looking for an aran sweater pattern for quite some time, but hadn't found one that wasn't a box or 8 times too large for me.  Then when I found the yarn I started flipping through my magazines and books and found this pattern.  I couldn't believe I'd looked so hard for one and it was just sitting right there!  See?  I love it!

Gorgeous sweater!  I saw Junuary in your title and knew you had to be from the PNW!  It's actually been sunny here in Portland the last few days.  Maybe summer really is coming?

I thought it might be as it was blazingly hot the last 2 days... but now it's cloudy and in the 70's again.  It could even rain.  It's supposed to be dry over here, not humid!  Even worse for sweater wearing  Tongue

Thanks for all the compliments!
