Time for a less successful finished project. The Rosamund's Cardigan from the Fall 2009 Interweave Knits interested me due to the short sleeves and the neckline. I decided to knit it out of Novita Luxus Stone and used smaller needles than recommended (3.5 and 4 mm) because I was afraid of it growing too much during blocking. However, it didn't, and it ended up being too tight. It's also too short for my liking, and the increases after the waist shaping make it flare up too much for my body shape. It doesn't look very nice when held closed just by the buttons, but the hooks I bought for it didn't work out, so for the pictures it's held closed by safety needles. I was thinking of using some snaps instead of hooks, but since I have little desire to actually wear this thing, I will probably never get around to sewing them on.
