WIP: A Sweater for Nathan

It’s almost finished!  This cardigan sweater was both a joy and a pain to knit.  I love the cables and how the yoke is constructed so it can be knit in one piece (I hate seaming), but I don’t like how the pattern is written.  The shawl collar came out wonky, and after ripping it back and trying something different (did I mention the how badly it was written?) I’m just going to fold it under and stitch it so it looks the way I want it to. 

The sleeves are really narrow in the forearms, so I might try to undo the cast-on edges and make them a little wider.  Other than that, I just need to kitchener stitch the armpits closed, block it and add some buttons.

I think he knows it's a Mr. Rogers sweater.

On a fall decorating note, my family room mantle is complete!  Rebecca from Bending Birches showed me how to create fall garland from colorful fall leaves.  It adds the finishing touch to my fall home and I love how it came out. Thanks, Rebecca!
