|The original knit, knit in February|

|Not a great photo at ALL, but it's the only one I have of the back|
|Was definitely NOT using markers that morning :O|
As for the fit: I definitely am not a huge fan. I'm sure part of it is the 6/8 sizing in the yoke, but it's definitely larger around up there, and the buttons still pull. And as for the button bands themselves, I'm a fan when the collar is added AFTER the bands, as I think it's more aesthetically pleasing to have the collar topping the bands, rather than the bands sidling up to the collar, if that makes sense. If I'd thought about that, I could have done it, but I clearly hadn't.
I'd even gone to great lengths to purchase some more Swans Island Natural Colors Merino Worsted in Tarragon from someone on Ravelry, and I'm pretty sure I didn't even need the extra skein...but I'd been so worried! I honestly should whip Tiberius up a hat to go along with this sweater. The yarn is great, and I'd totally use this line again. I love the color, and in the photos, it comes out truest in the outdoor shots.
|These are the faces I get, LOL, when he isn't blurry|
While it's cute and while the pattern is well-written, I don't know that I'd knit it again. I liked the Northshore patterns I knit up for both Camden and Tiberius, but knitting another cardigan has me nervous, LOL.
Days in the life.....
|Camden loves copying her books|
|Just a day out at the farm ;)|
|She has been dying to write with a quill, like Hermione!|
|We great four pumpkins! And I HOPE they aren't frozen!|
