This cardigan has been in the WIP pile for years -- I can recall 2 years when I had this down as my NaKniSweMo sweater (and that's because it had already been lying around for a good while in an unfinished state). I'm not sure why it took me so long to just finish it up -- it's a straightforward knit (although lots of picking up stitches on this one and that's not one of the things I enjoy doing).
And it's been interesting to see how my knitting has progressed over that time. One of the things I used to do was convince myself that I'd done said number of inches for the body (I'm really impatient you see) when truly it wasn't quite there. So a lot of my first sweaters were just a touch short. (Ha ha not quite midriff 80's style but you get the idea!) Although this one isn't too bad, it really would have benefited from an extra cm, or 2, in the body length. Another
So it's done, and I love it! I think it'll be going on vacation with me this week....
