Finished Object

I've been reading up a storm--more details on that in the other blog. But I also finished the big knitting project I've been working on since February. Wore it Friday, in fact.

Details, for those who care:
The pattern is Marilyn's Not-So-Shrunken Cardigan, from The Garter Belt. (Also on the designer's (Wendy Bernard's) website, Knit and Tonic.) Slight modifications in that I knit garter stitch borders instead of hemming the bottom and sleeves. It's knit top-down, in the round, on a circular needle for the body and double-pointed needles for the sleeves. The ruffle is crocheted on when it's all done.

The yarn is Blue Sky Alpaca's Alpaca Silk, in blue. I think I used about six skeins. In fact, I have a skein left over, and it's just so soft, I've got to use it for something lovely. But not right now.
