Hi Joodiekadoodie! I miss buttons too, but the pattern design is for an open look. I'm was.thinking about a self-yarn frog, which I'm still considering, but haven't done. I have just enough yarn left, 35 g. Maybe later, next Fall.

A frog or clasp might pull out, stretch out, or distort the body pattern stitch which is robbing, as it holds the sweater together in the chest area. So I'm still thinkin'....

Lovely, you look wonderful in your new sweater. Did you say great grandma? I'd never believe it except you said it!

Yes! Our oldest granddaughter is 25, and her son will be 1 year old on May 17th!

Our nine other grandchildren are all much younger, ages 13-5.

Perfection as always. The color is so good on you and the cardigan is truly beautiful. You will forget the aggravations you endured after a while.

Me, too. These cables were the most fascinating cables I've seen in a long time. Easy, too. I thought they were so elegant looking, not old-fashioned at all, not traditional, not futzy.

Well, you may be feeling your age (can't speak to that), but you certainly don't look like a great grandma!! Thanks for posting the pictures of you in your new creation. It looks splendid on, and you look fresh and plucky yourself!

How elegant! The saddles shoulders are perfect for carrying the cable (even if they are they are weird to seam). You look just beautiful in this color and sweater. A treat to see.
