Just a few loose ends

Only one day left until my niece turns one year old! Unfortunately, the cardigan sweater meant to be her gift is still here with me...and still in a few pieces! I just finished the second sleeve on Saturday and seamed the sleeves last night. If I can get my act together, I may get the shoulder seamed and the sleeves set in by bedtime tonight.

Here's a look at where I stand.

One long piece makes up the body of this sideways knit sweater. Just fold, and it begins to look more wearable.

Too bad it still has to be shipped several states away. Lucky for me, little A doesn't know much about birthdays yet! She won't know any differently when it arrives a bit behind schedule. Hopefully her mama will think it was worth waiting for.

I love the color you chose - it's very fall-timey!

What yarn did you use? I've wanted to make that sweater for my niece and don't want it to be too chunky looking.

She will totally think it's worth waiting for! What an adorable sweater :)
