Sweaters! Please don't destroy them. (Whoa-whoa-whoa.)

Alright, Interwebs.  I finally took pictures of the FRONT of the Modern Garden Cardigan, and took pics of the Featherweight Cardigan.  Happy now?  No pics of Girl Friday yet because the button issue is just too prevalent still.  But, two out of three isn't bad, eh?  Also, there are all sorts of hilarious face shadows due to the mid-morning photo shoot, so a couple of the shots are headless.  (Seriously, my face just looked too messed up.)

First up, Modern Garden Cardigan.

Good times.  Good times.

Next up, the infamous cardigan knit in laceweight, which was a complete bore to actually knit, but a complete joy to actually wear.

Yarn: Knit Picks Shadow (Oregon Coast)
Needles: US 6/4.0mm

So what now?  Well, I've already made a pair of felted slippers, and I've already cast on yet another cardigan (is it clear that I've decided to make 2011 the year of the sweater?).  Whew.

Finally!  After months of tedious knitting!  The featherweight cardigan is cast off! 

I mean, it still has to be blocked, but it's cast off!  And it's super soft and cozy and I kind of love it even though it was a boring bear to knit.  Once my week of guests is out of my blocking room, I'll get 'er all blocked and then finally do that photo sweater post.  Woohoo!
