create:: the sweater

About 2 months after I started knitting last year, I decided to start a sweater. I kept reading things about knitting like "its all just knit and purl stitches", and figured, why not start a big project?  Ambitious and a little crazy, I cast on the lovely tea leaves cardigan, after seeing Amanda Soule's gorgeous version on her blog.  14 months later, it is finally done, with a lot of other (smaller) knitting done in the meantime. While pictures of a wool sweater are not exactly typical for early July, I can't resist showing it turned out just as I had hoped.   And now, on this 90 degree day, I will go carefully fold it and store it for a chilly fall day in a few months!
