Don't get me wrong, the color is to die for. Probably my favorite color of all time. The shape of the sweater is very boxy. Um, I like the sleeves though.
I should have known better. The pattern says to knit for twelve inches, then cast off for the sleeve. I should have knit about fifteen inches or so. It is too short, I think. Knitting with two strands of dental floss was making my eyes cross, so I just went ahead and cast off anyway. No shaping either. I should have added just a bit around the waist.
See Jack's little head there? Frank and I can never sneak outside for a "photo shoot" without one of the kids noticing.
Pattern: Kelly cardigan from Classic Knits, by Erika Knight.
Yarn: Ice Kid Mohair. The yarn is a mohair polyester blend that I was hesitant to get, but it really is soft and nice. It was really inexpensive, which I am thankful for now. I am curious to see how it will wear.
Mods: none. I highly recommend some waist shaping.
