At long last I've finished the Shapely Boyfriend Cardigan by Stefanie Japel. I started this right at the end of October last year and being knit in aran weight yarn, it shouldn't have taken long in theory but it's been picked up and put down, picked back up and put back down again, but finally it's off the needles.
It hasn't been blocked yet, I'll probably just give it a bit of a steam blocking, and it's quite hard to get a good photo of it, but you can get an idea of what it's like. I'm really quite pleased with it.
It was working up rather small when I first started it so I pulled it back and started again, knitting a bigger size, and it has now come out on the large size, but I don't mind that, I like oversized sweaters, especially cardigans so that I'm able to layer up. I've also knit it a little longer than suggested.
I used Drops Nepal, a 65% wool 35% alpaca blend, in the Camel Mix colourway. It's a good budget priced yarn, especially as Wool Warehouse often have sales on Drops yarn so you can buy it even cheaper.
I'm sure I'll be very thankful for it when winter comes round, it's lovely and warm and will be perfect to snuggle up in.
