Yay! My sister and I both finished our cabled yoke sweaters! Aren't they beautiful? :)
My "long version" sweater was made with Bernat Roving in the color "Lazuli".
My sister Ginger chose to make the shorter version in "Putty".
The buttons I chose are black, with a blue design in the center. Works great with the sweater! :)
As you can see, I added an extra buttonhole for my sweater. I just wanted it to have a bit more sturdiness, to hold the cardigan together well, since mine is a plus-size version.
My sister chose some beautiful metalwork buttons for hers. Nice!
It was fun making our sweaters together. We had quite a few conversations across the country, discussing our projects. (I'm in North Carolina, and she's in California.) Sometimes, we had to help each other out with parts of the pattern that gave us a little trouble. I had trouble with picking up stitches, and she asked my advice on choosing the color for her sweater. We would check in with each other at least once a week, to see how far along we had gotten with our knitting. It almost turned into a race! :)
I always claimed that she was ahead of me because she chose the shorter version, and hers is a smaller size as well. Then, she would remind me that I started mine a couple weeks before she did. :P She had a little trouble getting her yarn in California. After checking several craft stores, she finally ordered her yarn online.
For now, the race is over, and we BOTH win! Now, we will wear our beautiful cabled cardigans on opposite American coasts with PRIDE!
