What started out as an easy summer vacation project is now finally finished. I took a long break from this project and finally picked it up again a couple weeks ago to finish it up. The pattern is Essential Cardigan from Interweave Knits Summer 2010. The yarn is Elsbeth Lavold Silky Wool in Periwinkle Blue. This yarn has been sitting in my stash for many years and I thought this project would be the perfect use for it. I found lovely metal buttons on Textile Garden. The only modification I made was to make 4 buttonholes instead of 8. I bought the buttons before thinking up a project to use them for and only purchased 4!
