If you check my Ravelry project page for this sweater, it says that this cardigan took me over 11 months from start to finish. Which is true because I frankly did start it last February, but then it sat when I realized I had messed up the lace chart. I finally came to terms with the fact that I need to snip the old project and start over, which I think I did either December 27 or 28, so I really knit the sweater in less than one month.
I love the color (you’ll see below I did complete the other sleeve):
and it looks pretty good on me too:
The total yardage for the sweater is about 1,300 yards, and that’s with doubling the yarn for the neck/front bands and the wristbands.
