Sweater Success

My first truly wearable sweater, finished just in time for the cooler weather! I have rarely if ever worn other sweaters I've made because they were too itchy or too heavy for me. But this one is soft, lightweight, and cozy, and I've already worn it several times!

Pattern: Abigail Cardi by Cecily Glowik MacDonald
Yarn: Quince and Co. Tern in Barnacle, 5 skeins
Needles: 3.0 mm

The sweater grew some when I blocked it. I was able to reshape it to close to the original size, but it's a little bit large for me. Overall though, I'm pleased with how it turned out, and am even thinking about buying more Quince and Co. yarn for another cardigan (probably Lark to make Tinder by Jared Flood). I love all the Quince and Co. yarns I've tried so far.
