Jawbreaker


My Jawbreaker Cardigan from the Winter 06 Interweave Knits is done, and I love it!

This version is knit with seven skeins Tahki's Dakota in a dark brown (001). It's so warm and soft, I just want to give myself a big hug.

This sweater went so smoothly, I was convinced I'd have to rip every last bit out due to some crazy error. I did have to work the collar a couple times, and I'm still not sure it isn't going to flip up. If it does, I may just tack it down and move on!

Oh, and did I say I love it? Yes, I really do.

Mo! A fiine FO! You got that sweater done quick! I don't think I have seen any other FOs from the newest IK!

I love the color you chose. It's great on you.

Geezo! You really ripped this out in a hurry! (No pun intended.) It is quite lovely - I had my eye on it as well.

It looks gorgeous and no one would notice a bit of yarn tacking the collar down if it won't stay down.

this is a lovely sweater! It's funny because I like how this looks, but I remember seeing it in the mag and thinking 'meh'. Your version is much nicer!

It looks lovely, I'm just about to start the collar on mine. I've used Jaeger Natural Fleece for mine. Bev
