Stellar’s Jay Cardigan: That’s All She Wrote

It’s the end of an era!  The project has been finished and I am just a little bit cozier than I was before. (And just in time for it to start feeling distinctly fall-ish around here.)

I finished my Stellar’s Jay Cardigan.  I added my zipper, and, when my extra yarn arrived, finished up the missing arm and grafted it in place.  I blocked it out and pretty much haven’t taken it off since.

The Knit Picks Swish Worsted is so fluffy, cozy and soft.  And, it’s machine washable, so I don’t worry about wearing it all the time.  The only problem with the yarn is that it’s so soft that it’s already starting to pill in the armpits, but that’s not a huge problem, I can just remove the pills as they come up.

I couldn’t be happier with how this sweater has turned out!
