think pink

I know most of the knitblog world is off to Maryland right now, but the rest of us can still have fun, right? Well, I finally finished my top-down raglan cardigan! Tadaaaa.

I used the Incredible, Custom-Fit Raglan Sweater Generator, which you can find here. I must say I was a bit skeptical, mostly because I didn’t trust my measurements or math, but I am really happy with the sweater. I wanted a kicky little sweater I could throw on, and this really fits the bill. I used about 15 balls of GGH GOA in hot pink, and the zipper is a two-way zipper I ordered from Zippersource.
Here’s a glimpse at the back of the sweater. I used a cable pattern from one of the sweaters in Paton’s Street Style (at least I think that’s what it’s called):

    Are you referring to the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival this weekend? It looks so fun! Speaking of which, have you been to Lambtown in Dixon, CA?

    I love it! I’ve used the raglan generator before, and was happy with the results. But I’ve only used it for baby sweaters so far — might be time to try one for me.

    The nearly-six-year-old looking on says, “Her pink shirt looks good!” I agree.

    I clicked on the image to see if I could see the detail near the zipper. Did you knit a sort of garter stitch column, at the edge? And then pick up garter stich along the edge.
    (I don’t know if what I’m asking is clear, but that looks like a column of alternating knits and purls just inside some garter stitch trim. Looks nice!
