I finished this leaf-tie cardigan (from Fitted Knits) about 2 weeks ago. It was a relatively easy knit--no ripping out was required, which was a first for me! I substituted Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece (color: lime light) as I'm not skilled enough with sweaters yet to want to fork over the $80 or so for the Cascade Yarns Indulgence that the pattern called for. I only made one alteration to the pattern: I had read somewhere in a knit-along that the leaf-ties came out kind of big and ugly, so I made them about half as big as the pattern instructed. Oops, can't see those leaf ties in that picture. Here's another view:
Hooray! My first sweater that I will actually wear!
