That’s right! It’s done! I’m even wearing it as I type this blog post. 🙂 I love my Neville Cardigan.
The photo’s were taken at my LYS, which very much appreciated the sweater, and were taken by one of the librarians I work for at my University. I helped her teach another one of the librarians how to knit tonight. It was a ton of fun. There’s a great group of women there and I’m going to a crochet lesson next Friday. It should be fun!
I have to admit though, it’s a relief that it’s finally done. I started this back in August. Though I loved the project, it’s also a relief to have it finished. I’ll definitely been wearing this for the rest of the cold weather we have (and we’re expecting even more snow, oy veh), but it’s nice and warm, and though I might have to roll up the cuffs of the sleeves to type properly, it’s quite comfortable to wear. You don’t feel the weight of all that yarn when you’re wearing it, though when you’re just holding it, it’s a good couple of pounds of wool.
As I posted on Monday (and Wednesday), this took forever to dry. It was finally completely dry this morning. It was mostly dry last night and I was able to pick it up off the floor, but I had to leave it laying with one sleeve laid out overnight last night for it to finally finish drying completely though.
This will definitely be a sweater I wear for a long time. 🙂
