I finally finished the grey sweater that I have been knitting for myself. I've been waiting a long time to make this sweater for me - I've made two other sweaters with this pattern, and it's practically the perfect sweater pattern to knit. Top down - so you can try it on as you go - very little finishing work - some cables at the bottom to add some shaping and interest so you don't get bored at the end.
It reminds me of a sweater I used to wear. It was my grandfather's cardigan, and my grandma or my mom gave it to me after he died. I loved that cardigan. I wore it so much that it got holes in it and I had to throw it out. Anyway, this sweater reminds me of that one. Of course, now it's summer. But, when fall rolls around, I'll have a nice new sweater to wear.
(I made this for my sister, and hers and mine are different colors, but we have the same button. Matching buttons!)
