It's been a while since posting knitting updates in time for Ginny's yarn along. But my Shalom cardigan is DONE. As in, it's even blocked. I love it. Could've used an extra 10 stitches for the cast on, but I think it looks perfect with one button done, which is how I'll be wearing it. And I'm still counting on losing a few pounds sometime this year, mostly from my face (ha ha). So it's all good :)

what a beautiful sweater! that colour is simply gorgeous and perfect for spring I think.

I've followed your blog for quite a long time but have always felt a little shy about leaving a comment. I'm trying to work on that though :)

I love it, Olya! Even the color is perfect!! You've inspired me to go seek out the only yarn store I've been able to hunt down in Bogota, although the thought of driving there makes me more than a bit nervous... wish me luck!
