Steeking My Stonecrop Cardigan

We are in the final stages of this pretty cardigan.  I love the colorwork, but I will tell ya it took a long time to get through it all.  I am not sure if I would make another one.  You never know.  I might be up for another challenge and I think I wrote enough notes in my pattern to be able to divert all the obstacles I came across the first time.  

The only thing I would change is to make the sleeves a little bit longer.  I enjoy a 3/4 sleeve for my summer sweaters, but I think I made this one too short.  Maybe with blocking I can increase the sleeve length a bit

I am choosing to sew instead of crochet the steek area.  I heard that it works better with slippery yarn like yarns with nylon and superwashed.  

FYI- I am still working on my version in DK weight farm yarn. 


Happy Yarning, Dawn Aurora
