My latest sweater, finished!

I just finished putting together my latest knitting project. It's a bulky cardigan from Vogue Knitting Winter 2010 issue. It was a pretty quick knit and has a lovely cable and garter stitch checkered pattern on it.

I did the sleeves in stockinette so they wouldn't be quite so chunky and I'm happy with that change. The ribbing at the bottom of the sleeves is still kinda bulky, but looks ok with a slim fitting top underneath. I also only did one layer of the ribbed edge at the neck, as I thought the top layer would flop over. I really liked the Elsebeth Lavold Twice Tweed yarn I used. It's a recycled yarn made up of wool and cotton.

Now, on to my next projects...knee socks and a bulky, seed stitch coat/cardigan! ♥
