Marpril Sweater!

I finally finished my March Sweater for March Sweater Madness, only it took me until the end of April.

Project Details:

Pattern: Top-Down Raglan Cardigan from Cosmicpluto Knits aka Laura Chau
Yarn: Cascade 220 Wool in color Cherry Blossom. I used just over 4 skeins.
Needle: US 8 circular and DPN's
Size: 36-38" bust
Start: March 1, 2008
Finish: April 27, 2008
Mods: Followed the pattern as written although I chose to not add button holes. I may add pretty ribbon and snaps down the front though. I also added the cable from the Tangled Yoke Cardigan on the bottom.
Thoughts: This could be a fast knit. I started March 1 with the race on March Sweater Madness. But after someone else finished, I put it down to work on other projects. Glad I was able to finish before Summer though! I have the sweater on as I'm typing this. I think it does need some sort of closure so I'm going to look for ribbon and get some snaps. Other than that, I think this is a beautiful sweater, if I might say so myself. ;o)
