GUYS. I finally finished Featherweight. I started this stupid thing in OCTOBER and I am usually mostly project monogamous.

Pattern: Featherweight Cardigan, by Hannah Fetig
Yarn: Jaggerspun Zephyr Wool/Silk, about a quarter(ish) of a one-pound cone in Bottle Green I got in a Ravelry swap (for two skeins of Misti Alpaca Lace. I KNOW)
Needles: US 6/4 mm circ and dpns
Mods: Added length in the body and the sleeves; did the collar/edgings in garter stitch

Okay, so you can see the ladders in the sleeve where I switched dpns (and THAT stopped when I got smart and used a circular), and yeah, the collar is little funny, and YEAH, the sleeves are at a slightly awkward length, but guys?

THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING SWEATER EVER.

And I’m only partially saying that because it’s an entire cardigan knit in laceweight yarn.

But seriously, it’s soft and light and warm and totally perfect for casually throwing over a tank top when it starts to cool down in the evening. I’m so incredibly pleased that it’s done and I get to wear it.

If I lose it, though, I’ll probably have to off myself.

Anyway, the yarn. It’s wonderful. Soft and light and shiny (probably the silk) and definitely the nicest yarn I’ve ever used. There’s no way I could afford this if I had to actually buy it. It did bleed like a mother in the bath, but it stopped eventually (mostly). I currently have 3/4 of a pound of it left on the cone, and while I’ll probably keep about 600-800 yards for a nice shawl, I’m thinking about destashing the rest. Probably at whatever price WEBS currently has it at or slightly less since I really only paid about $20 for it ($17ish for the two skeins of Misti Alpaca Lace I traded for it and $2-3 to ship said alpaca to the person to whom I traded it).

If anyone on here is interested, let me know. I could be persuaded to sell in 4oz. lots, but not till I get home for the summer where I have a scale I can use to weigh it.

Anyway. GUYS. FEATHERWEIGHT. It’s DONE.
