Garter Yoke Cardigan

My first finished project of 2009, the Garter Yoke Cardigan from Knit 1.

Used 7 skeins of Handpaintedyarn.com’s Colonia 140 in the color Rohan.

The buttons are shell. I was determined to finish by the end of the weekend, and just made it. I sewed the last button on at about 9:15 Sunday night. This leaves me 6 days to finish one sock so I can meet my goal of having the cardigan and the socks done by the end of the month. Easy peasy!

This photo isn’t very good but it shows the true color better than any of the other photos I’ve been able to take. In person the color is darker still than this.

Garter Yoke Cardigan. Started December 24, finished January 25th. Knit on size 8 needles.
