you may remember that the september sweater was nearly finished on time (but not quite). then it had to go into time-out for a while - i wasn't happy with the way it was fitting, so i decided the only option was to rip out & redo the entire yoke. after working on it for so long, i just couldn't bring myself to do it - but i eventually bit the bullet this weekend, and ripped it out. & after two days of re-knitting, september is finished at last...
... & i absolutely love love LOVE it. it's a little baggy-looking in the picture - the shop dummy wearing it is considerably slimmer than me, so picture it being worn by someone much more - um - curvaceous. it's a great fit on me, & is hugely cozy & comfy & warm.

pattern: the cable pattern is from the "juno" cardigan (rowan magazine #40); the rest of the cardi i made up as i went along. apart from the cable panel, the cardi was knitted seamlessly from the bottom up; the cable panel was then sewn on afterwards. the silver clasps are from nordic fiber arts.
