Week 07 – Skein 09 Finish

My Vitamin D cardigan has actually been done for over a week now, but life has been exhausting so I am just now getting it up on the blog. The cardigan beats the original sweater by far. My cardigan doesn’t flow as nicely in the front as the pattern example, but I can live with mine.
