Orange-Grey Delancey Cardigan

After eight months in knitting process, it is finished.  "It" being the cardigan begun in the low lights of December last year.

 Yup, it is a l-o-n-g...sweater.
 With an orange grosgrain button band attached to the back of the front buttons for stability.
Orange flower buttons on the front.

And pretty orange cosmos from our gardens!
