Rosamund: the finish
I’ve had this sweater, the Rosamund cardigan, knitted for a few weeks now. I was apprehensive about the size, since I knit it with negative ease and it was a little… um, snug… before I blocked it out. Yesterday would have been a good day to have this sweater to wear, though, so I wove in the ends, soaked it in the tub, then spread it out on my blocking boards. This morning, I put it on, still damp, and am now basically blocking it on my body. I had gambled that the wool would loosen up with water and I was (thankfully!) right. It fits perfectly and all I have left is to figure out the hook & eye closures.
Of course, my bathroom is too dark to get a good sense of just how fabulous it is, but in the sunlight, it’s a lot more golden:
