Pattern: Shalom Cardigan
Size: One size, but I modified to make it bigger
Yarn: Cascade 220 - White (8505)
Needles: Circular 10.5
I had three skeins of Cascade 220 that I was trying to get rid of. This seemed like the perfect opportunity - and I didn't have a white cardigan of any sort. I started knitting the only size that the pattern offers, only to find that there was little to no chance that it would fit me.
I frogged it, and modified the pattern to fit an...adult? Yes, an adult. I cast on 30 for each front panel, 53 for the sleeves, 77 for the back. I cranked along and knit nearly the entire thing in a week and a half. Then, I started knitting something different and just never finished the last 2 rows. Last night, I sat down, busted through the last 2 rows, sewed in my bits and set it out to block. Whew. It's been FOREVER since I last finished a knitted item. The last thing I finished knitting was the Aviatrix baby hat...which I STILL haven't blocked and sewn in the ends. Someday soon...
