FO: Jackson Creek Cardigan

At the end of March, one of my favorite designers published a new sweater pattern, the Jackson Creek Cardigan. I fell instantly in love with the pattern (which I immediately owned due to purchasing the Urban Collection, vol. 2 when the first pattern was released) and I immediately went over to TFA and bought six skeins of yellow label (dk weight) in frost, a wonderfully icy blue with just the loveliest hints of grey.

And then I left the yarn in my closet until about two months ago when the TFA group on Ravelry started a Knit-A-Long for the Urban Collection. (The KAL ran from September 14 to October 14.) I immediately set to work knitting my Jackson Creek, and while I didn’t finish within the time limits set for the KAL, I’m finally done. I finished the sweater on Friday night, blocked it, and I wore it to work today for the first time. I’m in love with it. Another teacher told me it was lovely. (There was also the coworker who told me it looked terrible when the first teacher told him that I had made it, but I’m going to ignore that comment.) Long story short? I love it. I absolutely love it.

I know my head is chopped off, but it's the best pic I could get of the sweater itself.

I made a few modifications for this. I lengthened the sleeves to make this a more wintery sweater rather than the spring sweater it’s written to be. I also knit the body as one pieces because I wanted to. For more info, see my Rav project page.¬† IMG_1812 IMG_1813
