Project Update: XO Raglan Cardigan

I have hit a major milestone with the sweater I am knitting!  I finished knitting the main part of the sweater! It has only taken me 3½ years…

Right now it is being blocked.

Next up, I need to sew all the pieces together.  I am a little nervous about that part because I have never done it before.  I have read how to do it in a couple of books, and I plan on watching the videos on KnittingHelp.com, but really I think I just need to go for it and learn as I go.  Anyone have any advice?

Once the sweater is sewn together I need to knit on the collar.  That part should go quickly!

Finally, I need to find the perfect buttons and sew them on.  I am so close to finishing this thing!  I can’t wait to wear it this fall and winter!
