FO: Spring haze.

I know it's autumn not spring time but this project took a long nap in my knitting basket. I was occupied by other projects (most of them turned out to be failures- see previous post) so in desperate need of regaining my knitting mojo I decided to dig this cardigan out and finish it. So I did and I couldn't be more happy with the final result. Though there was some crying involved... I really loathe picking up stitches :(

Project notes:
Pattern : Peasy by Heidi Kirrmaier
Yarn: Rowan Felted Tweed DK
Needles: 3.25mm/ US 3 and 3.5mm/ US 4
Modifications: I stopped following the pattern after raglan increases. I knit the body first, omitting body decreases and eventually doing increases only. I wanted the sleeves to be quite snugly so I knit them straight for about 14 cm and then did decreases every 20th round four times. The yarn blocked very nicely.

I like this pattern a lot and I'm already planning to knit a pullover version of it.
Oh, and one more thing. Have I ever mentioned how much I love Rowan yarns...? :)
