A Milestone

I have finished two sleeves and the body and am about to join them to work on the yoke of a sweater, the same one you have seen here and swatched here. It is the Tangled Yoke cardigan from the Fall 2007 Interweave Knits (that's a Ravelry link). I am actually using the recommended yarn: Rowan Felted Tweed in Crush - number 139 and it does look like I will have plenty of yarn. Yippee! This is one of the yarns that has been discontinued and it looked like I would have to modify the sweater to have enough yarn, but luckily I found two extra balls!

I love the garter rib on the body and arms of this sweater, and just might have to do some more of it soon! I think an idea might be brewing....

Now I'm off to join the arms to the body. I know I'm still far from done, but I feel like I'm on the homestretch.

And then the button band.

And then the buttons.
