Well, I wasn't like knitting the whole time. As happens with so many of my projects, my initial enthusiasm wore off and this piece spent a bunch of time in hibernation.
What a great pattern! Super easy to memorise. It grew like a whole bunch. I knit until it was just sitting on my hips, and you can see the results post-blocking. And I didn't block it a lot, really just laid it flat. Also, look how cute the yos are just before the lace on the yoke.
One day I will knit something with some shaping, just wait and see :)
Pattern: February Lady Sweater. I made the larger sized 41" bust. I think I probably could have gone down a size, but I also quite like the coziness of it. Even thought the fact that it is full of holes kinda makes it a bit useless as a cardigan. But anyways, I like it. The buttons were 85c each at Clegs. Big spenda.
Yarn: Bendigo Woollen Mills (what else?) Luxury 10ply in Autumn Glow, which I think is the perfect way to describe the colour.
p.s. thanks lil sis for the photos! Saw some local wildlife nesting, among a bit of rubbish sadly, but he seems pretty chill.
