At last!! Really, the knitting just took a few days. I just put off sewing the collar and the buttons for *eons*. While this was on the needles I thought it was gonna turn out kinda ghetto, but I really, really like it on. If I could do it again I’d make the sailor collar a widge longer and four stitches wider…but all in all I’m pleased. It does need a simple edge on the bottom (pick up then bind off) but I’m couting it as done since I wore it to church this morning.

The boring stuff:
Zip-Front Cardigan with ribbed sailor collar. No pattern — just me and my measuring tape and that crazy KMW.
Knit in some mystery cone yarn I got on eBay, 55% wool, 45% acrylic. The photo makes it look grey, but it’s actually a natural/loden green tweed-ish yarn. Bulky weight. Knit on 16″ and 24″ US13 needles.
Started 9/08, finished 10/15.
