Silla almost finished!

Almost… because it still needs blocking, and as you can see – the ends woven in, and buttons sewn on. But the knitting is done.

Sadly… it doesn’t fit. Sometimes I forget just how busty I am. I’m also used to wearing my cropped cardigans with a little negative ease. Sadly, negative ease doesn’t work with this style – I should have gone up a size.

Still – it was an enjoyable knit. And this one won’t go to waste. There’s someone on my gift list who it should fit just perfect.

I’ll just have to make myself another one once we are in the new house and things settle down a bit.

    Oh, no…I hate when that happens. Every sweater I make is always a gamble whether it fits or not. I even took a Craftsy course on getting the right fit but I still can’t seem to get it right most of the time.

    What a beautiful sweater! How disappointing that the fit is not going to allow you to enjoy it. In the photo, it does look rather small. Guess it goes back on your to knit list. What a special gift it will be for that someone on your gift list.
