One Sweater Finished

Yahoo, it is finished!

I am much happier with the ribbing now that I have reknit it. The actual ribbing is four rounds of k1, p1 followed by three rounds of knitting, followed by five more rounds of k1, p1. The first attempt at casting off was using the Russian cast off that I had used around the rolled collar. It worked great for the collar. I like how it looks and it has lots of stretch but for the ribbing at the bottom of the sweater that cast off was way too loose and didn't lay nicely. In the end I just cast of purlwise and I think it looks good and it lays flat.

The next project to tackle is reknitting the sleeves on the other blue sweater.
