I am finally putting the last button on this cardigan. I started it about 6 months ago. Once I got going with it, the sweater went really fast. I got slowed down waiting for JoAnns to get in enough buttons for me to finish it!
Not that I was in a rush to finish it anything – I can’t wear it for a while anyways. It looks relatively normal from the back –
It’s the front that has some issues
Okay, let me re-phrase that –
It’s my front that has issues – though it’s nothing that another 8 weeks or so won’t fix! The front of the sweater itself is fine, but at 32 weeks, none of my regular clothes fit me.
It isn’t my first choice to show you these pictures of my bulging belly, but somehow showing this picture, just doesn’t cut it!
The pattern is called Hallet’s Ledge, by Elinor Brown. It’s a download from the Twist Collective from Fall 2010, so I have been eying this pattern for a while. It was a really easy pattern to memorize, yet interesting enough to keep me entertained.
The yarn is one of my favorites – Silky Wool by Elsebeth Lavold. It has a subtle tweed that adds nice interest to the yarn, but it still shows the texture of the stitches. It isn’t too itchy or bulky like some tweedy-wools are. I have probably made 4 sweaters out of this yarn and they have all held up really well (and I am kinda picky about that)

I’ll be back soon with another blue knit – this one for the baby.
Beautiful sweater and what a blessing that it doesn’t fit you in the front!!!
I can’t tell you how much I enjoy your blog, and seeing your gorgeous quilts and sweaters. The best part is watching that beautiful bump grow.
