Finished Minimalist

I have finished my Minimalist cardigan (a few weeks ago), but I haven't actually gotten a good pic of me wearing it yet. But I decided to go ahead and post anyway.I'm actually very pleased with how it came together. It was my first garment seaming project, and it really wasn't hard. I blocked it using the steaming method, using an iron about an inch above the fabric. The cashmerino is also so soft and lovely. Here's a fun blocking shot of the sleeves.

This is another, rather weird, shot of me wearing it for Christmas at the in-laws'.

Now that is finished and Chris' hat is done (picture to come..), I am working on my Warm Up America blanket squares! I'll post some inspirational pics soon :)
