If you sit in Central Park long enough.......

...every single person in the city will pass you by. If you work on a Central Park Cardigan long enough it'll piss you off, but look fabulous in the end. :)
It is finally finished! Isn't it beautiful?
Okay, I took this hooded picture rather strategically so you can't tell that I sewed it up to where I look like an elf when I put it on my head. It's kind of curved at the top with a little pointed tip, ya know?
Maven loves my cardigan, too. You can tell by the look in her eyes.
The lovely back! Don't you just love those cables? You can stop staring at my butt now, too. It's just embarrassing the way you're gaping like that.
I love these sleeves. They are so toasty!

I know this took me FOREVER to finish, but I am so happy with the end result. It wasn't an overly complicated cardigan and I learned alot from the pattern and how sweater construction works. I tend to stop paying attention when there's a pattern repeat and therein lies my problem. I would make a few changes to it if I ever knit it again. I would like to make it longer and make the wrists a little bigger because they're a tad tight. I sort of winged it and chose not to check my guage. Shame on me! Seriously, it was really fun to knit (after starting it over about 6 times) and the yarn is to die for. I have two balls left over and I have absolutely no idea what to do with them. Any ideas? Okay, so this is Maine and spring is like winter in other places of the United States, so I do have some idea what to knit. I just want something really special out of it. Happy knitting everybody!

Gorgeous! Stunning! I've always been too chicken to try cables. How about a scarf? That color looks lovely on you, if you had a scarf, you could wear the color near your face...

Wow!!! You did good. That is some pretty impressive knitting. I'm thinking you should make mine in a soft sage green. The Adventurous Archivist's mom.
