The Cardigan That Goes On Forever

I have to admit that I'm getting tired of sewing my cardigan together. Once I blocked the pieces I noticed the back was shorter than the two fronts! I sewed the shoulder seams together and you can really notice the I have to pick up stitches and do a little more knitting onto the back.

Last night I started the mattress stitch on what I *thought* was one of the sleeves.....but it was a front piece!!!! Well, at least now I have a little bit of experience doing the mattress stitch :-/

I also have to pick up stitches around the neck. It's in the pattern, it's not to fix a mistake I made ;-)

I have to take a break from it to pack because we're moving at the end of the month. I have a feeling the sweater will get shelved, unfinished.....
