Finished my first cardigan! :cheering: All I need to do is put on a button. When I get that done I'll take photos with it on me. I did an i-cord bind off and put an i-cord button hole. It's kind of hidden which is cool. It may get stretched a bit after buttoning though.

James C Brett Marble Chunky (http://www.kertzer.com/Yarns/MarbleChunkyAllShades/tabid/164/Default.aspx) - color 05 seashell

It can be made to any size, any gauge pretty much.

That is really lovely! :inlove: I should add here that I'm particularly enamored with things that involve no seaming.:happydance:

Gorgeous Jan. I'd love to try something like that for myself one fine day, when I am allowed to knit heavy things again. Will you share the pattern?

It's actually a really easy sweater and it kept my interest the whole time for the most part. I linked to the pattern in the first post. :thumbsup:

Yes I know and I went to the link, but it is only offered for sale inside the States and in California. That means they won't mail it to Canada, darn their pickled little hides!

I'm sure you can. It says to email her for details outside the US.

Very nice. Love the colors. You've picqued my interest in what an I-cord bind off is. I'll have to do some research!

Oh my congrats on your first cardigan. It looks great on you, I am also one that can not make sweaters and am in awe who do.

I hate seams too! :nails:

No seams gets two :thumbsup: :thumbsup: from me!

That cardi looks good on you. :yay:

Erm, did you do some trick photo stuff or are those some funky CA trees behind you? To me they look like rhododendron springs which would make you, oh, about 5 inches high! :lol:

:roflhard::roflhard: I actually laughed out loud at this! Those are Plumeria. I make DH trim them higher because they block the sidewalk. It's not the best place for them in that respect, but the plants do like it there. :thumbsup:

This is a real winner in all ways, Jan! The colorway, the design, the personal touches, and the quality of seaming, as well as the knit stitches themselves! Way to go!

Congrats, Jan! I love it!!!!
