Kyoto Cardigan- Finished

This post was a long time coming!  I’ve finally finished, blocked, photographed, and mailed this little number off to Japan.  Did you know it costs $15 to mail a 9oz package from New Jersey to Tokyo?  Yikes!  Good thing I didn’t make anything heavier!  :)

First things first.  It’s Raveled here (cardigan) and here (lovey).

The weather was terribly windy, so this is the only outdoor shot I could get.  Plus, my dog decided to escape our backyard fence (again) while I was trying to shoot, so that was the end of that.

My very first sewn button loop.  Loved the result and will be using this technique again.

The hand stitched binding.  A decent mitered corner.  It'll do.
