I am always astonished that it can feel like you work on something forever and you still have miles to go. Then one day, all of a sudden, without warning, you're done! Such was the case with the ribbed cardi I cast off last night.
The sleeves are wayyyyy too long. I foolishly made them longer thinking that would be a good idea. Not such a good idea. Laugh. I may chop the ends off. I'm still giving this some thought.
I'm also not 100% sold on the wide collar but it's growing on me.
I can say that I loved the Sidar Eco wool dk the sweater is made out of. I'd describe it as a loosely spun single. A little splitty, but not too bad. Nice and warm, pretty soft for wool. Good stuff!
So what do you guys think? Shorten the sleeves? Narrow the collar?
Regardless...Yeah!... one more project down.
Ribbed Jacket with Collar
Sidar Eco woll dk book (336 Code c)
12 balls Sidar Eco wool dk (100% undyed virgin wool)
US 6 circulars
Cast on about October 27, 2008
Finished December 19, 2008
Modifications: Recalculated the pattern given that I got very different gauge than the pattern suggested. Extended the sleeves longer than recommended by the pattern.
