Finally this FO
For some reason I just could not make myself finish this one. But I made myself do it and now wonder why I dragged my feet so.
This is Sirdar Open Ruffled Cardigan knit in Ocean. The ribbon yarn is unlike anything I have used before and gives a great squishy stretchy fabric. Knitting with it was not my favorite but I really like the result.

That's a beautiful sweater!

Maybe knitting with the black yarn is what held you up? I find it harder to knit with and I tend to find other things to do instead. I've pretty much told everyone..don't ask for black. I do like black sweaters though.

Ooh - that's really nice! I agree - ribbon yarn is not the most fun to work with, but it really does make a neat FO!

The sweater looks very nice on you. Nice fit and all. I like the ruffled edge.

Do I detect a little green in the yard? The shadow shows that the tree is still in winter mode. I'm looking forward to spring.

Hi Ceci! Your sweater is fantastic!

I've never tried knitting a sweater using ribbon, but I'd sure like to! I saw a ribbon sweater at my LYS, and it looked so interesting! Yes, and squishy soft like you mentioned!
