Done! Improv Cardi :)

Done! Improv Cardi :)
Originally uploaded by happy go lovely.
YAY! I finally decided what to add! I liked how it turned out with the ruffle, it gives it a girly feel that suits the colour. And the flower on the side keeps it from looking lopsided. I sewed loops on the inside of the ruffle for the buttons, so you don't see them when the sweater's done up, and i wove some of the boucle garn through the ruffle around the neck and tightened it a bit so it wouldn't hang like a collar but sit more snugly around the neck. The yarn is a really bulky cotton/acrylic blend that's really soft and makes a really cuddly sweater without being stifling. I already got complimented when I wore it out today, and I think it will be getting a lot of use. To think this is the first real sweater I've managed to both finish knitting and actually want to wear!
