What are you most proud of? That I got good with circular needles. I hold my straight needles in a weird way, with the end resting in the crook of the top of my leg while my feet are up on the coffee table, Then I can grip it & keep it stationary while my right-hand needle does all the moving--it's fast & efficient. So that quirk was out with the circulars.

What yarn did you use for this projects?

It's Lily Sugar 'n Cream worsted cotton--the kind used a lot for dish cloths. Color is Soft Violet. It's very inexpensive. I used it for my first 2 cardigans to get in practice. It's really soft. I won't use it again because I love the high quality yarns, but still I'm very happy with it.

Hi Yolanda...I used less than 4 balls, closer to 3. Each is 120 yards. Top is about a size medium.

So pretty! I just love the length of your cap sleeve. That would be universally flattering. Did you just finish them off where the underarm comes together?

This is gorgeous. The color is beautiful and the stitch patterns are lovely!
