raglan cardi, final installment

Can you see the collar? The raglan cardi was all finished last spring, except for the collar. Then the warm weather dried up my desire to finish this project. Now she has her collar, and she is keeping me warm. Thanks to my KRSP2 pal who gave me the first two hanks of this Ashford, 100% wool yarn. I was lucky enough to score four more hanks at one of the local yarn shops, and now I have a warm sweater in my favorite colors. The buttons were knitted in, using a technique taught by Lily Chin.
