It's Finished... and It Fits!

The Que Sera cardigan is finished.  Thank goodness!  It came off the needles looking very short and very slim.  I knew that it would grow with soaking and blocking, but wasn't sure if it would be in the right directions.  I had fears that it would remain slim and end up very very long.

Thankfully, my fears were unfounded and amazingly it fits, in fact it's a very good fit.

It's very comfortable to wear and I enjoyed knitting the lacy pattern.  It took just over two weeks to knit up, ignoring all the previous false starts.

I made a number of modifications to the original pattern.  Full details of this pattern, yarn used and all the modifications I made can be seen on my Ravelry page, here.

I'm so glad that one's out of the way.  I must say, it certainly shook my confidence in cardigan knitting.  I don't know why that should be the case.  I must knit at least five or six cardigans a year, and have been doing so since my teens.  I suspect it was all the false starts with this yarn, rather than the Que Sera pattern.  Anyway, I'm planning some smaller, quicker, less demanding projects for a short while now.  I feel an urge to make more socks!
