Farmer's Market Cardigan

















Here it is - all done! My Farmer's Market Cardigan. Excuse the poor photos as I was using the self timer, I'm realizing I shouldn't take photos with my hair all wet and that the turtleneck I'm wearing has lost it's oomph in the neck. All that being said, I LOVE this sweater.

It is still a bit wet so I can't wear it today but trust me tomorrow I'll be sporting it.




The pockets were a challenge getting the shawl collar to transition from pocket to neck. Lots of mattress stitch seaming which is tedious.







I did a 3 needle bindoff at the neck - I'll admit I did it backwards and after going through my repetoire of 4 letter words I ripped it out and did it right. My DH was worried he'd have to call in the reinforcements and the whole family wisely stayed away from me until I had calmed down and fixed it.
Now back to my ruffle for my Inca Marl Coat - I've done about 18 inches of it watching the Olympics.
