As promised, I recently completed a knitting project and wore it to work yesterday. I got pictures after it became light outside, but before I had to dash out the door and here they are.
I used Malabrigo Rios yarn, and this is a wonderfully soft superwash yarn (it doesn't feel anything like superwash.) However, it also does not behave anything like superwash yarn - that is, it changes substantially when washed to become much more drapey and grows a bit too. I am A-OK with it for this project, as I saw the direction it was going and decided to instead block it to have longer fronts and more of a drapey, diaphanous shape in keeping with many layering cardigans I've seen of late. I really like it. I love the way that the variegation worked out - no skein alternating required.
Because of the shape, I decided to skip the snap at the bust that's called for by the pattern. So (with apologies to Bonne Marie for taking my own interpretation of her pattern) here are pictures - I will say that I'd like to make this again the way it was intended, with a non-drapey, tighter woven yarn.
And here's what it might look like closed at the bust - I can still sew on the snap, but it seems like maybe the fronts being longer doesn't look right.
