FO- Urban Aran Cardigan

Finally something to show for my hiatus, right? I present the Urban Aran Cardigan. Unfortunately, this is the un-modelled version. I need to take time to do that. I will at some point before the weekend is up. In the meantime, please enjoy the arbitrary on-the-deck picture. Ahem.

Pattern: Patons Urban Aran
Started: January 17, 2008
Finished: April 8, 2008
Yarn: 16 balls of Elann Peruvian Highland Chunky
Needles: Size 10, 10.5, 7
Recipient: ME!
Modifications: Cardiganized

Now you will notice that the zipper is nicely done, no? That's because I didn't do it. Honest answer, right? Trust me, I'm not spending all this time knitting cables for me to screw it up by installing my zipper. It was worth the 8 bucks.
On a separate note, is it possible to love an appliance so much that you miss it when you can't cook? My new boyfriend is this new convection oven. It has 5 burners (with an extra griddle) of cast iron and 2 ovens with separate temperature control and convection.
Sorry for the blurry pictures. Another side note, RIP Magknits. Go over to the website and you can see what I'm talking about.

Love the sweater and can't wait to see the modeled photos! I think you can love an appliance that much.

I don't think I really ever cared if magknits was around. I only ever went there a couple of times and almost never remembered what I'd seen later.

That sweater is GREAT! I can't wait to see what it looks like on. I love me some immediate gratification knits so I may make this one.

I love this pattern! You made an amazing job. And I must say that your kitchen is to die for!
