Erin sweater finished

erin_sweaterThis was an easy sweater to knit.  The cables were done without a cable needle and it was especially nice doing that with the yarn…Rowan calmer, 80% cotton, 20% poly (altho on the rowan website it says 75% and 25%!).  The yarn has an interesting 2 ply twist.  I actually used one of the plies to sew on the buttons.

The only unfortunate thing about this sweater is that it’s too short!  I will block it and hopefully it will stretch a little.  I really have to get my measurements and USE them!

The sweater is from the book Heartfelt by Kim Hargreaves. This book has so many beautiful patterns it was hard to pick the first one to do!
