A FO!!!

Mum's cardigan is finally finished! Yay!! The pattern is "Refined Aran" from Interweave Knits Winter 2007.
Yes, that black blob is a completed cardigan (sans buttons - mum wants to choose those herself). I think I need some camera lessons so I can convey what it actually looks like, rather than just a cardigan shaped "thing" on my kitchen floor. It has cute little 3 stitch cables running down each front, mirrored on the back, & also running up each sleeve all the way up to the saddle shoulders.

The flash has washed this one out a bit, but this is the left shoulder. I just love the way those little cables meet & greet each other here.

This is about the fifth re-incarnation of this yarn as I wanted a "perfect" cardigan for mum. Overall, I'm quite pleased with it, but I think the sleeves are a little too long even though I did shorten them considerably. The bottom edges also want to curl, so I may try puffing at them with my iron ...

Anyway - Mum, I hope you like it!
