It looks great! I have this pattern, along with a bunch of that Cotton Ease, that was discontinued last summer - hope to make it toward the spring!

Remember when I said that there was very little finishing to be done on this??? I was SO WRONG. This cardigan gave me so much trouble in the end, but I was determined to conquer it! My biggest problem was that the left and right front edges of the cardigan were rolling like CRAZY and nothing I tried could control it at all :( . I set it down for a few days and got back at it today. A combination of Ingrid's ideas and some of my own got me through it. I ended up picking up stitches along the inside of the front edge, if that makes any sense (because I had already picked up stitches and done the trim as described in the pattern and was determined NOT to rip that out), did 6 rows of stockinette and seamed the live stitches down on the inside of the cardigan. It gave about a 1" hem and it took care of the problem like a charm!! Now I have to do the other side and then I'm DONE DONE DONE

I also re-did the cuffs of the sleeves today, making them a bit shorter and doing a sew-under hem instead of the ribbing that the pattern asked for.

So the moral of the story......if you are planning to knit this pattern, know that it's going to take quite a lot more than you think before it's wearable. :? Mine should be wearable by the weekend!

I'm just noticing that the yarn color looks different in all 3 of those picture, and none of them really looks how it actually is. Oh well.
