So Close

Here's my Glory Days saddle-shoulder cardigan, following the general instructions in The Knitter's Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters. I added a foldover collar, which I finished with an I-cord bind-off to match the body.

I was at a photo shoot and snapped a shot on a mannequin when everyone wasn't looking. All that's left is the zipper. I ordered one from Zipper Source but it will be a couple of weeks before it ships. I thought about ordering it earlier but I'm glad I didn't -- the I-cord edging tightened up the front opening and I would have ordered a zipper that was too long.

Hi, Ann. I met you at the Spring Fling in Co and enjoyed your class quite a lot! You were knitting with our group on Saturday night and working on this sweater. It looks beautiful.

Wow, this looks really great! Watching the progress was fun, too, but the (almost) finished project really came together well.

Lovely sweater. Thank you for sharing your knitting with us, it has been fun watching the yarn become a sweater.

It looks beautiful. I feel your pain on waiting on orders on shipping. I have the attitude of "but I need it now! Why can't I have it now?"
