For all general purposes it's done.
I bought the buttons on Sunday - but haven't attached them yet.
This is a top down cardigan. I added waist shaping - taking it in for about 4" above my waist and then letting it back out.
It took 12 hanks of alpaca and I won't tell you how much I paid for per hank - suffice it to say this was an expensive cardigan which will become a staple in my wardrobe.
It needs a little bath and when I add the buttons, I'll tack the cuffs up too. They don't want to stay folded up where I want them.
So - January got one cardigan finished. I might actually get 12 done this year.
