Finished: Audrey in Unst

I started this sweater back in January 2016 as something easy to work on during show choir competitions. I got about halfway through the body, and then I shoved it in a project bag and forgot about it for a while.

This year, I really want to get some of my long-term wips under control. Finish the ones I want finished, frog the ones I want to frog, etc. I really wanted this finished sweater, so when I needed something small to work on during the play I was in, Audrey fit the bill. Once I picked it up, I couldn't really put it down again, and I'm so glad to have it finished.

This is one of my favorite cardigans. It's the perfect weight, I love the colors, the shape, the fit. I've had this pattern saved almost since I first started knitting, and I know I'm going to be wearing this a lot.

I knit this mostly as written. I added just a hair of length in the body and I made the sleeve cuffs only half the length called for. They're really subtle changes, but this cardigan fits really well in my wardrobe now, and I can wear it with skirts or jeans, no problem.
