I finally got around to seaming and blocking my Stranger Cardigan!
And… I like it. I don’t love it, but I think it’s partly that it took me an age to finish (I get annoyed with projects that take too long), and it’s partly because it’s pretty warm here (and no one loves a thick wool sweater when it’s super hot).
I like the shoulders- the seam between the two cabled panels is very pleasing- so neat and tidy! And the sweater turned out nice and long- it goes down to my mid-thighs, so it’ll look great in the winter with leggings or jeans and a comfy t-shirt.But, I think it’s a little too long in the arms. I’m always so paranoid about having too-short sleeves, I end up making them too long. It’s a curse. I might rip them back, or I might leave them. It could be nice to have long, cocoon-like sleeves in the dead of winter.Of course, my favorite part is still the lovely cables up the front. That’s what drew me to the pattern in the first place, and I still love them! These cables might find their way onto some other projects, too.I’m pleased with the finished product, all told. And I’m even more pleased that it is finished.
What’s your most recent finished object?
