Friends, it took me a year and a half of on-and-off knitting, but I have finally completed my Bianca cardigan.

It doesn’t have buttons yet, but it was past time to get some photos, so C. helped me take a few in between rain showers.

I love moss stitch edging. Although it’s hard to tell, the cast-on for the bottom of the body and sleeves is done in a contrasting colour. The shop didn’t have orange so I used pink – can you believe I bought a whole 50g ball of pink just to knit a few rows? That was when my yarn collection was tiny and I didn’t have leftovers and scraps…

And I have to say, for all the pain of knitting a whole sweater on #2 needles, the stringing of beads, the setting-in of sleeves, it’s a great fit.
