Gnarled Oak Cardigan...

Is blocking. Finally. It seemed like for a sweater that is mostly stockinette, it took a long time for me to knit. Running is really cutting into my knitting time...

I'm super happy with the way that this turned out. I love the color.

I had these buffalo nickle buttons on hand but I'm not sure I'm going to use them.

I love the yoke.

The oak leaf motif is really beautiful.

I tried it on before I added the button band and it is a bit big on me. I wanted a closer fit but looser is ok too.

I didn't end up using all 5 of the skeins I ordered for this project. I still have one full skein and about a third of a second one. Now I have to find a small accessory project to use it form Madeline Tosh is too beautiful to let languish in my stash. As soon as it's dry and we have a clear day, I'll be sure to get pictures of the sweater on.
