FO: Keelin Cardigan
Finally finished! It's been slow-going when I have 3 sweaters in progress at the same time. Seems like nothing gets done, then all of a sudden...3 sweaters are done. I don't know if I like this process I've fallen into......I used to knit ONE THING at a time...then move on to the next!

I have the project posted over at Ravelry containing information about the pattern source and the yarn, etc. I didn't post any notes about knitting the cardigan. I did make a few modifications in length of sleeves and body. Wider buttonbands. It fits perfectly! The color looks fantastic on me. I will try it on for photos on another day. Today is not that day.

My first reaction was OMG - is that ever beautiful! Well done (again) Artlady. I look forward to seeing you model it. I agree, it's too hot now.

Too hot is right!

Plus, my two little granddaughters spent the night, and we were up til 4am watching movies (me dozing off I have to admit)! I can't do that anymore...this morning at 10 I felt bedraggled and pooped! Sewed my buttons onto Keelin, took photos...but no modeling in my old (?) sad condition...

What a gorgeous sweater, ArtLady!!! That light yarn really shows off the pattern well!

Beautiful sweater, and impeccable work, as always! I guess the back has the same cables as the front?
