a warm cardigan

I've finally finished this cardigan for Betty. Doesn't garter stitch take ages? It's a dense stitch that uses quite a bit of yarn; four balls for this size. So the resulting cardi is a warm one and fairly heavy. The pattern is a free one and is from here. It is knitted sideways, casting on along the front left edge and casting off the front right edge, and uses short row shaping to flare out the waist. I'm pleased with the finished result.
