Completed at last!

Yarn: Twinkle Soft Chunky, Peach
Needles: Denise 15mm and 12mm
Mods: Made the cardigan seamless and I also used shortrow shaping on the neckline instead of binding-off and picking up the stitches for the collar.

Well, Here it is at last! My Best Friend Cardigan! Overall I am very happy with the end result. Surprisingly, it isn't really puffy when you put it on. It's kind of slinky and very very soft. I am not sure how practical it will be, but i guess I have other cardigans for that job. It looks great over a my dark blue winter knit dress, tights and grey ballet flat shoes!

Progress of Thermal; Getting there slowly.

What a very beautiful cardigan this is! I really love the pattern as well as the color of the yarn, and it looks perfectly cozy and comfortable to wear! Congratulations on a really great accomplishment!

I love the cardigan! I'm so jealous of you for knitting and completing such a big project! I've so far only managed to complete small projects like baby clothes and scarves. I'll be checking back to see the progress on the thermal too, it looks really cute. Maybe that can be my first big (bigger?) project.

What a lovely cardigan ,the colour and looks so cosy. Wow it's great to see someone so young achieving so much. You're very talented. My daughter is a dancer too, I'm trying to get her into knitting, but we never get much passed the cast on, before it gets forgotten. Oh well she only 12 , still plenty of time
