With the Feather and Fan Cardigan teetering on the edge of a permanent time-out in the bottom of my knitting basket, I decided to push through last night and finally finish the bodice. It’s a miracle. Seriously. Although, it’s not much of a miracle considering the enormous mistake I discovered while lining up the edges and getting ready to start the seams. Luckily, it was something I was able to fix (kind of). So, while it’s not perfect, it’s good enough and I can live with that. Not bad, considering it’s my first adult-size sweater AND my first lace project.

That sucks about the mistake, but at least it was fixable. It looks gorgeous from the picture!
It looks beautiful in the picture. I’m not sure what the mistake was, but I’ll doubt that there will be many people who will notice. They’ll be dazzled by the overall achievement. Congrats!
This is why I hate seamed sweaters. They never line up. Your sweater is beautiful, by the way. I give you lots of credit for making yourself finish it. I probably couldn’t have.
Good for you to press on and make it work – esp. for your first self-sweater and lace! It’s going to be beautiful.
My mother-in-law knit the patternworks feather and fan sweater for me. She is 84 and has many years of knitting experience. However, this sweater caused her to spit many bad words, and she was ready to toss the entire project behind the TV and leave it there forever! But, she finished it and I have it. It is absolutely beautiful, however, it does not hang right. The front, where the two sides button together falls down to the middle of my rib cage. It is way to loose and floppy. Any suggestions?
