the brown cardigan

look! its FO #2 for 2007!

Pattern: Cropped Cardigan from Blue Sky Alpacas

Yarn:
KnitPicks Wool of the Andes in Chocolate

Needles: a 6.5mm Options circular needle, kindly lent to me by Suzanne

Comments: This was a very quick knit because its knit with two strands held together - I started and finished it within a month, while also working on another (also brown) sweater. Its knit top-down, with simple raglan increases. I like it - should be good for spring, what with the short sleeves and all. If making it again, though, I think I'd change the sleeves a bit. the long ribbed sections are designed to match the ribbed body, but I think they make my arms look a little blobby. but then again, maybe that's just me being paranoid. :)

anyway, here's a bad photo of how it looks on:
