Headed for the frog pond

Since Sept 14, I've been working on an orange cardigan, based loosely on the Long Coat with Chevron Lace from Fitted Knits, pictured here (scroll down). It's a top down raglan sweater. I didn't know how much yarn I had, so I knitted both sleeves before finishing the body.

I bound off the bottom hem last night.

It's absolutely huge. I would felt it to shrink it, except one of the yarns (I held three together, discussed here) is superwash and won't felt.

I'm going to set it aside and finish my dad's vest. Then I'll probably end up frogging the orange sweater and starting over.
