The Lexington Line

My latest cardigan is Metro by Connie Chang Chinchio.  I used Sliver Moon Farm's worsted BFL in the moss coloway.

It's an interesting construction: knit from the bottom up, with a three-needle bindoff on the shoulders; some additional knitting of the color, which needs to be kitchnered, then seamed; and the picking up and working the sleeve caps as short rows.  It did not look like much while I was knitting it, but I kept on, promising myself better things post blocking. I was rewarded.  I am not thrilled with my technique on the short rows, and I do not like the reverse stockinette hem, but overall I am happy with it and it is very wearable.
