It’s done and washed and blocked. My Spring Morning cardigan is done, and only a week and a half late. And, this being Canada, it’s still cold enough to wear a thick woollen sweater.
I have to be totally honest, I’m not 100% in love with the finished project – it’s a bit too big and it gives the whole thing a very casual look. I’ve come to realize that my biggest hurdle when it comes to knitting (and sewing!) my own clothes is trusting that they really are going to fit. I look at the measurements given in a pattern and think to myself Better too big than too small, I’ll just go up a size to be safe. And so I end up with baggy clothes.
This project really reminded me how much I hate seaming. I think my next few sweaters are going to be top-down so I can eliminate as much finishing as possible. Plus, that way I can try them on as I go along and make sure they fit.
