my new (not green) cardigan is finished and i’m very satisfied with the result. even though i doubted the design of it, especially when the knitting bit was done but i still had the seaming to do. it looked rather strange and small. but now i’m convinced that i did the right thing when i knit up the smallest size and added some modifications.
