So I Can Wear This Sweater

 Since spring is only just now thinking about getting going it isn't too ridiculous that I have a newly finished sweater to show off.  A few days ago I finished Nantucket Red, or as I call it Nantucket at Night.   It's black...Night.... Not see?  Good.
Simple, goes with everything cozy everything a cardigan should be.  The yarn is Alpaca Soft, some stuff my mom was getting rid of.  It's a loosely spun two ply alpaca and a bit of B to knit with.  All wanting to be splitty.  I figured it would be going in and that it would also be drapey (Alpaca) and have no stitch definition (loosey two ply).  So I wanted something simple.
The pattern is for cotton yarn, which is also drapey so I figured it would be a good fit. It has a bit of lacy something some to give it some interest visually and while knitting.   I did adjust the sleeve length for full length because I had the yarn and a full length cardigan is more useful in my mind at least.
 I didn't put the clasps on and I don't think I will.  Hooks right across the bust line of anything don't really work on me.  I'm liking the cozy leave it open of it as is.

Yes, you can wear this! It seems like the trend for cardigans is the open look so I say go for it. Real nice btw :)
