Purple Donegal Tweed Sweater

I finally finished this sweater that I started back in January. I had it tucked away in my craft room waiting for me to take interest again. It was done on size 6 needles with Donegal Tweed DK by Sirdar which is now discontinued. I was holding my breath I had enough to finish the sweater because I couldn't find anymore of this yarn. I probably finished with a mere 10 yards left over. I have more of this yarn in navy for another sweater but with a couple of extra balls. The pattern is by Sirdar and is simple to do. This is my first cardigan and I really like it. Just a stockinette stitch with seed stitch turned back cuffs and trim. The buttons don't show up too well in the picture but they are perfect. I found them at JoAnn's and they are wood with the exact shade of purple faded to a lighter purple in the center.

What a beautiful sweater!!! I love the color and the seed stitch cuffs. I almost think there is some excitement to running out of yarn, but then when I know I will, I feel dread at having to deal with it. I'm glad you had just enough.
