Side to side cardigan

The side-to-side cardigan, done in Omaghi Filati Wonderful (colorway Pumpkin) is done. Well, done except for the buttons, of course (buttons which I still have yet to purchase).

I probably could have chosen a better color shirt for underneath, but it's what I was wearing at the time. Plus it's obvious I need to do a little more pressing for shape, although I think once the buttons are on, it will help define the shape a bit more (for the button band and buttonhole band). But over all, I'm pretty happy with it. By the way, those glowing eyes are courtesy of Azzie, my feline shadow (he follows me *everywhere*!).

All these other knitting journals have been talking about that beautiful wool for sale on I thought I could be strong, but then I came up with the perfect project for that wool and I caved in and placed my order this afternoon. 15 skeins of the Mocha Heather are winging their way to me, hopefully in time for me to knit them into a lovely birthday present for someone.

beautiful cardigan! I've been holding off buying from elann for quite awhile. It's killing me I swear. especially when i hear all the rave reviews of the wool and alpaca. *sigh*

on another note, that is the neatest picture I've seen of a kitty. the glowing eyes from the shadow are soo neat!
