Finished a Sweater

It always seems to take me forever to finish knitting a sweater – especially one for me, since I put it aside to work on gifts or items for sale.  I started this one in January 2010 and finished it at the end of February 2011, but I think this adds up to just three months of knitting.

It is a variation of Medrith Glover’s Circumnavigated Cardigan,  using Shepherd’s Own – an undyed wool yarn that has flock numbers instead of dye lots.  The buttons don’t show in the photo – they are pewter, with sheep.

It is almost spring, so I will wear this every day until wool sweater weather ends, then block it.

As soon as I finished this sweater I got down a box of UFO’s from the closet shelf and took out a half finished spring sweater which I hope to complete at least a week or two before summer comes.


  1. Hi Jackie
    What a great looking sweater! It looks nice and warm. 3 months is fast. I’m impressed. Thanks for sharing! Katy

  2. Okay, I’m all caught up now, and it’s wonderful. Ready for more! I like the closeups of your yarns, especially that puffy silk/merino.

  3. Great job, Jackie!
    I knit Medrith’s pattern several years ago for my husband’s aunt, and it was her favorite sweater.
    I think it is time for me to make one for myself.. if I can get the Christmas gifts finished first, of course. Already have 3 sets completed for this year, and 3 more on the needles… like potato chips, I can’ have ‘just one’. (;-D)
