I have been working on this project since my birthday in october and I have no idea why it took me so long to do. I had the back, both sleeves and one half of the front completed within 3 weeks of starting. Then for some reason I just stopped working on it. So the either night I finally picked up my needles and knitted the last piece.

I am really impressed with the finished product. I think it looks really great and I am super glad that I chose to make it in red. It is going to look so cute over some dresses that I have when it starts to cool down a bit.

I am thinking of making another one in yellow and possible grey. They are just such versatile cardigans. And if I make it all in one go next time it really shouldn't take too long.

I used the Jen pattern from Kim Hargreaves book Precious and the wool is 8ply Merino from Spotlight Basics.  I didn't put the buttons on because I do not think I will actually use them at all so I decided to leave them off.

I agree with the no buttons choice. It's perfect as it is. I love Kim Hargreaves' patterns, they are so classic and gorgeous. great job!

That is beautiful! I hope someday I'm able to advance to knitting something like that because I would totally wear that. And what a great color too!
