It is with huge relief that I am able to say the kingscot cardigan is finally complete.
I'd like to be able to say it was an enjoyable knit, but that wouldn't be telling the whole truth. The whole truth is this:
The cables were fun.
The shoulder shaping wasn't fun, even after I'd re-done it three times.
The setting-in of the sleeves was also done three times, and suprisingly I did my best work in this regard whilst I was inebriated.
I enjoyed the seaming.
I have no idea why the front bands are knit separately (in a vertical manner) and then sewn on. I wish I had have knit them at the same time.
The neckline pick up is perfect.
I am going to re-do the button band because it's a little wavy.
The buttonhole band is perfect too.
I don't know why this is, since they are essentially identical.
This is annoying me no end.
However, in spite of all this - I can see myself wearing it.
As a matter of fact, I can literally see myself wearing it right now!
I promise I'm going to take some pictures of me in it tomorrow. I know I say this all the time, but this time I really mean it.
