WIP! Cardigan Comes A-Long-Way!

Over the weekend, I finished the second sleeve, made some adjustments to the body (adding about 1/2-1″ of fabric) and then faced the (gulp) task of joining it all together. Now, this is my 4th sweater and I am fairly comfortable with set-in sleeves and short rows, top-down or bottom-up. But I have not completed a raglan sweater or a cardigan, so this join was a bit different. I studied up; watched some Craftsy segments of the class; read and re-read the pattern and then dove in. I had a couple of uninterrupted hours last eve and boy did I need them . . . I had an extra long cable needle, two sleeves on holders, four sweater cable charts + the sleeve cable chart, tapestry needle, waste yarn, raglan stitch markers, and a lot of patience. But it seems to have come together OK–I even looked at it critically in the light of day and I appear to have two sleeves. The cardigan did not grow two extra overnight, and all appear to be on the right side of the fabric. Yay!
