I just realized today that I may have left a few people in suspense as to whether I finished that sweater on time!
I'm looking forward to taking a picture of my nephew wearing this, but I think we should wait until after the current heat-wave passes. Perhaps in the fall.
The yarn is Sirdar Juicy DK, which is a cotton-bamboo blend. The swatch came out well after being chucked into the dryer as well as the washer, so it should be easy-care as well as soft on the skin.
The pattern is Aran Sweater and Cardigan
by Zoë Mellor,
which was a nice pattern, though I really would have loved to have charts. I got by anyhow by using sticky notes to keep my place, and after finishing the back, the work on the front was much easier to keep track of.
