TYC FO Pics and Amused WIP

Pattern: Tangled Yoke Cardigan, Interweave Knits Fall 2007 (great issue!); Size 38
Yarn: Knit Picks Telemark, Persimmon Heather, 14 skeins (1442 yd)
Needles: US5 and US 4 circulars
Notions: buttons from JoAnns
Pattern Notes: I changed one thing: the collar attachment. Instead of doing the 3-needle BO, I ripped that out and sewed it down instead. This eliminated puckering and the annoying ridge created on the WS that would've cut into my neck. Otherwise, I followed the pattern as written.
Additional Notes: To avoid wasting any Kookaburra scent, I'm not going to wear this until knit night! The tea tree oil in Kookaburra is so pleasing.
Note: More pictures can be found on my project page on Ravelry.

Now I have two cardigans, my casual CPH and now one that's a little more dressy. Speaking of CPH, I'm wearing that hoodie OUT. It gets worn almost every day and requires almost daily pilling removal. The WOTA yarn has begun to appear overall slightly felted from all the wear and tear. Eventually, I'll have to think about making another everyday cardigan, maybe next time in a cotton blend for warmer weather.

Last night I got to the sleeve separation on my Amused. Yesterday afternoon, I took a picture of my progress, which you can see here :-)
