    Ok, I’m knitting this also (in Classic Elite Wool Bam Boo) and am sooooo excited about how yours turned out. I’m just up to the first buttonhole, and am also knitting in all one piece. Only trick is figuring out where to join yarn (first 2 were at the nonexistent “seam” and the 3rd at the front ribbing).
    Thanks for leading the way! Can’t wait to see what you’re knitting next . . .

    You did a beautiful job on the sweater, and the color really compliments Sara’s dark hair. This cardigan is definitely on my to-do list.

    It is beautiful! I’ve been waiting to see how it would turn out, and how you felt about it…because it’s one that I’d like to knit as well. I was excited about your yarn change, and decided that before I copied I should probably wait to see how it worked. ;-) Clearly, it worked VERY well!

    What a beautiful sweater! The fit is really perfect.

    I don’t know if you are interested in growing heirloom flowers, but your previous post reminded me of a great company for flower seeds and bulbs, called Select Seeds. Their website is http://www.selectseeds.com and they do not sell genetically modified seeds. Now I’m off to check out the ravelry group that you mentioned, crafty gardeners.

    You did such a great job on this sweater. What a beautiful gift for your sister! That extra three weeks was well worth it.

  20. Laura

    It’s a gorgeous top and you’ve taken such great pictures of it! I love the textured pattern on the top.

  21. Péitseoga

    oh wow i love it! it’s really pretty, great shape and great colour! i recently discovered that colour for myself too, it only popped up in the shops here last summer, i had resigned to the fact that red just doesn’t suit me but a really light red is actually flattering (I’m pale with blue eyes and freckles and light brown hair)

    It could not be more perfect for her. Just couldn’t be. You are fortunate to have each other.

  29. teresa

    This cardigan didn’t stand out to me in the magazine, but now that I’ve seen yours/Sarah’s I’ll have to give it another look!
