My (Green) Simple Elegance Cardigan Completed

I started yet another project in the mist of knitting the Lush and Lacy Cardigan! This time, I'll try NOT to start another project until it's done. I was needing a cardigan for those cool morning so I thought I'd make one for myself. Besides, I've been wanting to making something in green for a while now but still haven't until now! This cardigan is from the spring issue of the Creative Knitting magazine. It took me about 11 days to do. That's pretty good considering I just don't have the time to devote to knitting as I use to. I had some trouble with the decreases but I think I was having a hard time concentrating. It had been a stressful week! I'm not 100% thrilled with the seaming but I think it's something I could live with. I used a single crochet to seam the shoulders. I think it look the neatest of all that I tried. I used a size 10 1/2 needle for the whole cardigan instead of switching to 10's for sleeves and trim. I also, lengthened the sleeves. Overall, I'm thrilled and very happy with this cardigan. It's a great fit, easy knit and I love the color!

It looks great on you. I love the color. I need to think about making more colorful clothing, too.

It looks really good on you! Funny I'm currently knitting something from Creative Knitting too, but not from that issue. :-)
