Finally got that Monkey off my back

NO, not my monkey socks, my neckdown KP&S top down cardigan.Knitting pure and simple cardi

Knit with Cashsoft DK, I don't remember how many skeins. This yarn is so soft, and it grows with blocking. After looking at my archives I realized I've been knitting this since October. Why did it take me so long.... well, this became my mindless, soccer knitting. When I got home, I always put it down for another project. That's when I had 3,4,5, things going at once. I decided to stop that foolishness and concentrate on one thing at a time and now it's done! Finito.
I decided not to add the ties to the neckline, instead I have some pewter clasps to use as a closure. I just have to look through my supplies to find them.

Overall, impressions: it's a very easy and mindless pattern, and if you knit it consistently, it really wouldn't take that long. I'm happy with the end result.

Oh, it is so pretty. It looks great on. I have one on the needles that is currently on hold. It is a mindless knit, however, it's not really in the round b/c it's a cardi. So you knit and then purl back, so you don't get into the "zen" state of pure in the round knitting.
