this is a cardigan that i constructed from what i believe is acrylic wool ? its slightly itchy but you forget about the itchyness after a while. i made one for me. and i wore it out one day to the library, when a woman noticed it and asked me where i got it. i replied ’ i made it ’ and we proceeded to talk. She asked me to make her one for which she would pay me. I was extremely excited as this was going to be my first sale ever ! she paid me twenty for this, i stupidly told her that it cost me 3 dollars to make. I have learnt my lesson ahah “pump up the price” this is the one i made for her. i took photos of it before i took it out, i even made a tag ^^ i modified a lydia pattern to create this. im also extremely happy with all the edge finnishings and hems as they are very neat.
