As promised - pictures of my finished Venus Cardigan sample. I want to apologize in advance for the picture overload that is to follow.... but since I have to ship this bad boy back to Swans Island in the morning I thought it better to err on the side of too many than too few! This truly is a design fit for a wardrobe staple. I could see myself wearing this all year long. And I love that the design is ageless - here pictured on a 15, nearly 23, and 48 year old (all with different builds) and I think it looks great! While there are some adjustments I will make next time (see ravelry notes), I will definitely be knitting one of these for my closet!
