Arietta finished

Wow, that was a long time coming.

Not surprising since I kept setting it aside to work on other things. I love it and it's the perfect thing to wear in the spring and summer. Love the colors, love the fit, love the yarn, everything!

Pattern: Arietta Cardigan, Spring 2007 Knitty. designed by Barbara Gregory

Yarn: Knit Picks Shine Sport, 60% Pima Cotton, 40% Modal (beech wood fiber)

Buttons: 3/4" pearl from Great Grandma's button box.

OMG is this yarn yummy!!! I started this sweater when P was signing the closing papers for the house (August 22nd) and it spent a lot of time untouched in my knitting basket while I worked on packing, unpacking, peeling wallpaper, painting, hanging pictures, etc. I finally finished it May 10th and wore it to Shepherd's Harvest, as I had planned.

Very nice, its good to see a larger picture so I can appreciate the pattern a little better. I was thinking about trying that yarn... just ordered some Harmony interchangable circular needles, am very excited to try them out!
