Swoon Scarf Neck Cardigan...

Brynwood Needleworks - Scarf Neck Cardigan
Another project on the Christmas List "Finished" pile!

This was made from the Swoon pattern "Scarf Neck Cardigan" (FREE at Swoon (Click HERE for the sewing patterns page and scroll to bottom.)
Brynwood Needleworks - Scarf Neck Cardigan Fabric
I used a luscious lycra/jersey knit blend purchased from Nancy's Notions a couple of years ago. I bought it to make t-shirts, but it was perfect for this project. It has a wonderful drape for a cardigan.
Brynwood Needleworks - Scarf Neck Cardigan French Seams
All the seams are finished as French seams so there are no exposed edges. All that was left to do was turn the ham and top stitch.
 
It's a beautiful, soft and comfortable fabric that's almost fleecy on the inside (but much less bulky). I think the recipient will be able to wear it any time of year, and it'll pair with anything from jeans to dress slacks, skirt or a perfect LBD (Little Black Dress). I can't wait to hear what she thinks of it.

Today is my "deadline" day. I have two projects left before I can wrap and package everything that needs to be there by Christmas. I have a few other projects to make to ship, but it's not necessary that they be there by Christmas Day. I can finish those and ship next week to arrive later.

Grandson's jammies and one other gift are what I need to finish today. Gotta run. I'll be in The Workshop!
