Oh yeah, and my big project--the Top-Down Cardi

The first knitting class I signed up for at Knitche (my LYS) was the Top-Down Cardigan class. I had big plans to adapt it, but it ended up being a pretty traditional cardigan. I bought my yarn on eBay, which is a no-no according to some. I ended up choosing fairly well, however. My yarn is a wool and rayon blend. Hindsight being 20-20, I'd do Malabrigo next time. So soft and gorgeous. But this sweater is done, it fits me, and I'm proud of the outcome. It awaits only some funky buttons which are coming from a lady who handmakes buttons and then sends them to Knitche. I wore it without buttons, but they will be the finishing touch.
