Good news bad news

I'm as finished as I'm going to be.


I thought it was too long, so I decided to try to felt it just a little, to shorten it up some. However, I forgot that the button bands were picked up and knit sideways from the edges. So, while most of the sweater shortened up as I'd wanted it to, the button bands did not. It's turned out kind of a combination of the Tangled Yoke Cardigan and the Tilted Duster.

After thinking I'm pretty much done, I just don't have the desire to cut off the button bands (I don't think they'd frog very well since they're slightly felted) and pick up fewer stitches.

BUT...my little brother and his wife are expecting their first baby in January, so I might just give the sweater to my sister-in-law. I think the angled bottom would look kind of cute over her pregnant belly...right?
