I finished this cardigan from Garnstudio.


I used Wool-ease (which I won't again, it is itchier and scratchier than regular acrylic). It took about one month and the seaming isn't great.

Sorry no action shots but I am pregnant and made this sweater according to pre-pregnancy measurements, needless to say growing belly and bust makes this impossible to wear (now I have even more motivation to lose baby weight post-pregnancy).

Thanks for looking!

Oooh, how lovely! I bet it'll be nice and warm for this winter (once you fit into it, of course). The seams look fine to me. I tried a sweater once and it had a very strange shape when I tried to put it all together. Needless to say, it was not wearable.

Cute! And the kitty likes it too :3

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 texture and color beautiful. Couldn't you wear it unbuttoned  until the little one is born?
Congratulations by the way Smiley

It looks great.. and I love the blue yarn that you used.

Did you have any problems w/ the instructions?  I've read a few comments here and there-- about garnstudios having some confusing instructions-- but, they have lovely knitted garments.

The kitty photo is cute!   I miss having a kitty. ;(

I've got a brand new blog:  *I'm one with the masses now!

Thanks for the comments!

I could maybe wear it unbuttoned but the thing that grew the most is my bust and it looks like "fat man in a little coat" sort of.

Garnstudio does have confusing instructions but I find it the easiest to just go through the pattern. If I read it before hand I would never understand what they mean. But I wouldn't recommend their patterns for very beginners.

I couldn't take a photo without the little guy butting in, even now he is trying to get in the comment with his little paw typing!
