WIP- 2 cardigans
I'm close to finishing two cardigans so I thought I'd share. Both are also on Ravelry.

Amiga
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/amiga-2

I'm using Rowan Panama in a denim blue color. I'm actually at the bind off on the bottom. Then I pick up stitches for the button band. Class isn't for two weeks so I can work on sleeves between now and then.



Circumnavigated Cardigan
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...gated-cardigan

I'm using Berroco Weekend in brown. Need to finish the sleeves and pick up for the v-neck button band.

Both sweaters look great! Your knitting is so even -- even before blocking!

Fun to see the work in progress. They both look wonderful and the pockets on the second are a nice touch. Beautiful work!
Are you going to try Dorset buttons for the Amiga?

These are lovely works-in-progress! And two of them? Wow!

I just bought a couple of those button making kits from Wal-Mart, and I'm hoping I can use scraps from my HUGE stash of wallpaper samples to make buttons. Only problem is I don't have any projects that require buttons at the moment.

Thanks for sharing your projects.

Thanks!

The one with the pocket is my second of that particular pattern. The pockets are ingenious and very handy!

I doubt I'll do the dorset buttons, but we'll see.
