FO: Summer Cardigan
I finally finished my summer cardigan this morning. I wish I'd have knit it one size smaller, but overall, I think I like it. It's knit from the Diminishing Rib cardigan from IK, using I Love This Cotton yarn from Hobby Lobby.

Splendid job! A nice spring/summer evening sweater is always a good thing.

What a lovely sweater for the summer. It looks wonderful! How did you like working with I Love This Cotton? Have you washed it yet? I keep looking at it in the store and love the softness and colors.

I think it looks better on you than on the model in the mag! Good work.

Very pretty! The color looks great on you!

I made a washcloth out of that yarn (same color), and I just love it. It washes well and has remained soft. It's wonderful to knit with as well.

I haven't washed it yet, but working with it was a pleasure. It's just so soft.
