Its dry!

Living in Denver has its advantages. Our humidity is so low here - a sweater will dry on a Wooly Board in 8 hrs.

So here it is! Not the best photos of me (when I'm on vacation I will not wear makeup and I will not wear my contacts).. but I am very happy with the result. I may reblock the sleeves to make them a bit longer but the cardigan turned out to be cropped and I love it like that. I am very short waisted so its wonderful!

Here I am:



And another one (its so hard to take a photo of yourself in a mirror! )

Thanks everyone! Judi - I made the smallest size and ended up using the same needle sizes as called for in the pattern too. Before the Wooly Board it had REALLY pulled in - wouldn't go around my hips at all but the Wooly Board helped to stretch it out. I think I will get a lot of wear out of this sweater. I love it!

I'm so happy to see the finished product worn and fitting so perfectly. It looks great on you! I loved following the Kauni saga as you proceeded. Beautifully knit and finished.

Oops, I forgot to mention that I now have a song running through my head, which I'm sure will last all day - Wooly Booly! Thanks a lot, Ricki!!!
