You can see I've made good progress in my work on the Shetland cardigan. As I've been going, I've been thinking about how I'm going to modernize this piece. Here's how the sweater looks in the book:
She looks like a very sweet grandma and I'd love for her to knit me a sweater like the one she's working on, but it's not quite the style for me. ;-)
I've picked a style that I think will be more modern and work well on my full figure. The style is a v-neck buttoned with a single button. Both of the examples I've seen have a slight shawl collar, which I may not want to add, given the texture of my yarn.
I feel pretty confident about this knit and I'm really looking forward to completing this sweater.
