Oh very pretty! I love the sleeves. Great color!
I have not worked up the courage to attempt a cardigan/sweater. Also wish I could knit better. <---jealous.

Thanks fellow Craftsters!!  Grin  The sleeves were definitely what sold me on this design and believe it or not, they don't really get in the way much (which is good).

I think I'm going to just leave the sleeves as is, thanks for the encouragement! It also saves me from having to do more twisted cord (yuck).

And crafty01_87, you should totally go for a sweater! Honestly, if it wasn't for this pattern, I might have waited much longer to finally knit one, and now I'm so glad I did!! I would suggest a top-down raglan too, this way you can try it on as you go! (And it also doesn't involve much seaming, if at all, for those that don't like to seam)

Lol! That should be your Craftster quote.

Thanks so much!  Grin If I don't go for variegated yarn, I try to get yarns that are green, because I know the color will compliment my ungodly pale skin complete with freckleage.  This way I don't have to worry about spending all that time knitting something and have it clash with my skin tone.

Thank you!  Cheesy

I actually looked at all the projects on Ravelry for this sweater /before I decided to make it, and I noticed it looked good on everyone who made it, no matter what size or shape they were! This is definitely an equal-opportunity cardigan Smiley

Absolutely gorgeous!  I am very envious.   Definitely makes me wish I knew how to knit.
