A Finished Sweater !

This week I actually finished a project!!!   Hot off my needles is the modified version of Asheville, a free top down cardigan pattern by The Noble Thread.  I plan to knit the pattern as written, but couldn't resist using my stash of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick.  

I'm super excited as this cardigan fits me perfectly in the shoulders, the sleeves and in the length.  It's heavy and cozy, but will be perfect for wearing while traveling or on those few chilly days in Arizona.  

I used a total of 8 skeins of Thick & Quick (696.0 yards (636.4 meters), a size US 11 for the sleeve cuffs and collar, and a size US 13 needle for the rest of the sweater.   I plan on attaching a toggle on the top, just to keep the front slightly closed.  I kind of wished I had thought about adding pockets, it would have been a nice addition.

For those of you who are interested, you can visit my Ravelry Project Page for all my modifications.

What have you been working on this week ?

Until next time ~ be creative!
