Done It!

I did get to the end of the border, eventually, and then there was the small matter of sewing it on.
Surprisingly, it didn't seem half so long when I was sewing it on, that part seemed to go really quickly.
 
The border definitely gives all the bits their shape, and finally, it looks like a proper cardigan.  Being black, and wool, over the months it's been in the making, it's managed to pick up a lot of threads, so now it's been washed.  I shall block it, and it's ready to go, no buttons are needed for this one, so no delays.
 
There is a version of this with three quarter sleeves, which I may do, but it won't be in black.

Well done! And just in time for the colder weather! Although you'd have had plenty of opportunities to wear it already with the summer you've had!

I was going to comment on your black pit of despair sweater in your last post, but I can clearly see the despair is gone and all that is left is a stunning piece of work.

Congratulations on another beautiful piece of work!
