Another HUUUUGE step in advancing my knitting skillz. I just started this last night to overcome my fear of doing a 'real' project. I have no clue who will be the lucky recipient of this cardigan, but I wanted to knit it as a sort of practice run to make sure I could do a sweater for myself.

And I went ahead and changed the arms anyway, hopefully I can figure out how to 'make it work' !

Thanks!!! When I really get into something I tend to obsessively knit until it's done... just have to sew the buttons on now :o) Would have been done hours ago if pesky work didn't get in the way ;o)

Great job! I love doing top down sleeves, then you don't have to sweat over sewing them in. :) Hard to resist. I like your yarn, it looks like that orange sherbet with the vanilla ice cream mixed with it that I like. Yum. Turned out very well. Baby sweaters are my favorite. You'll find a taker. :thumbsup:

The pattern just happened naturally from the yarn I was using :o) The actually pattern (which I'm going to have to look up lol) calls for it to be knit with three different colors and three large stripes... I wasn't so comfortable at the time with the idea of changing colors so I just altered it to be what I wanted it to be ;o)
