So, my NaKniSweMo project for this year is kind of late, but I stuck with it and got it done! I'm glad I did, because this is one is definitely one of my favorite sweaters ever! The knitting went by pretty fast, because it was done on a size 8. The back and forth knitting of the cardigan was tedious at times, and all of the ribbing at the end made it more so, but it looks really lovely, and I think it was worth it.
I'm really happy that this sweater turned out so well, because I felt like the yarn was tainted with bad vibes. Remember when I was knitting all of those swatches for J. Knits? Well, I was compensated in J. Knits yarn, but it took a lot for me to actually receive the yarn. The woman who was my contact there mysteriously left, and my new contact was not responsive via Ravelry or email. It took a LOT of emails, message board posts (that were not received well at all), and waiting for me to actually get this yarn. I feel that knitting such a nice sweater out of this yarn was a good way to erase the bad vibes associated with it.
