Here's my second FO of 2009: a Best Friend Cardigan. I knit it in a day, but it took me a couple of days to get the guts up to seam it...and the seaming looks terrible. Luckily, the chunkiness of the yarn masks the mistakes, I think. Unluckily, it's in the upper 80s here in Los Angeles. I guess I'll have to wait a good while to wear this thing.

Comments always welcome!

Nice color and cables!  Though your seaming looks fine from where I sit, you might try blocking your sweater to clean up anything you want to lie differently!  Keep knitting!

A day?! Jeez, I thought I was a fast knitter, but I doubt I'd be able to make that in a day.
It's really cute! I love the colour. I'm in San Diego and it's really hot here too :/ it's been really dry, too.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

The northern downpour sends its love.
