Off the needles!

My Kauni is FINALLY done.. at least needle-wise. Still needs to be blocked (right now it looks more like a child's sweater) and I need to tack down the edges and weave in the ends. But after lots of rework its done. IT's DONE!!!!!





This was a fun knit (except maybe for last night...) - and I learned a lot of new things. thanks so much to everyone for all the help!

Well done, it looks terrific. I'm so glad you didn't make the sleeves to match; it drives me crazy when people do that because I think it's missing the point of working with this yarn. I particularly like the bits where the green and blue collide.

Beautiful sweater! I like how the button band kinda pulls it all together colorwise. Are we going to get a modeled shot?

It came out great! It's just like mine, except I'm at a stand still. For the life of me, I can't get the corrugated ribbing around the neck right. I've torn it out 5 times now. So, today it's in "time out" and I'm mad. Did the waist band with no problem but can't get the neck right.
Can't wait till mine is off the needles. Great job!

Beautiful job, to echo the group lol:) And I also must say I agree with Helen on the sleeve issue ;) I do obsess about most everything, but I think the fun of this yarn is that it doesn't match....right? But for those who did, that's all good too :)I say whatever tickles your pickle hee,hee!

Wow! Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. The Kauni and the Collies!!
I am a "computer illiterate" I figured out how to make a button with a link to the KAL for the Autumn cardigan. It's on the left column on my blog

If you know how to do it you are welcome to it. I don't know how "buttons" for things with links get passed on.
PS
Didn't mean to leave out the cute kitty too!

It is gorgeous, Ricki. When I do mine, maybe I won't match the sleeves either. It is part of the fun.
