I finished the Ropes and Picot Cardigan that was published in Interweave Knits Winter 2008.
It's a lovely design by Laura Grutzeck.
I used Jo Sharp Silkroad Tweed DK. It is by far the loveliest tweed I'd ever worked with. OK, so there are some vegetable matter spun in with the yarn, but the yarn is so soft and not scratchy at all. Too bad it's discontinued.
Needle #4. Also used Filtes King Australian Merino for the folded over hem for some contrasting color.
Initially I wasn't so sure if this beautiful color will look good on me. I think I like it after I tried on the FO.
I love the lavender color, hence I named it Little Lavender Cardigan. A little loveliness for myself.
