Finish Friday: CCTC

I finally got the zipper sewn in for the Can't Clean Toilets in Cashmere cardigan.

Not the best job ever, but for what this cardigan is targeted for, it's just fine!

I did end up with a heavier zipper than I wanted (drawback of online ordering... but it's not like they have any kind of zipper selection at Joann's). It'll do, and the blue is surprisingly a decent match (I had ordered a grey zipper just in case).

The pattern (Ribby Cardi by Chic Knits) is a favorite for a reason. This might be finished number 6 or so? I might need a break from it (or at least the next one will have buttons. I might just need a break from sewing in zippers... and I have two more to go!)

 Project Stats!

Pattern: Ribby Cardi by Bonne Marie Burns (the most knit pattern here at le Knitting Park)

Yarn: Red Heart Super Tweed

Changes to the pattern: well, I changed where I did my raglan decreases so that I ened up with a moving rib. My gauge was a little larger than the pattern, as I needed the extra room.

Problems with the pattern: uh, ya, there's a reason I've knit this a billion times. So no. No problems with the pattern.

Overall impressions: this is the type of project that reminds me that I am an equal opportunity yarn consumer. It's a Red Heart yarn. It's acrylic. The yarns snobs are gasping in horror. However, I can't (or want to) always wear high maintenance sweaters. This is for those chilly days that I don't have to worry about keeping it clean. It can be tossed into the washer and dryer. I looooove the colors (that blues is just stunning and I bought more of the grey for Matt).

So I have Suzy Too! to get a zipper in yet plus one of my earlier Ribbys. However, one zipper at a time!
