Retro Prep the Third

Pattern: Retro Prep from Fall '02 Interweave Knits
Yarn: Elann Peruvian Highland Wool
Needles: US 4, 5 and 6 Addi Turbos
Notes: I used the stripe pattern from the Angora Striped Raglan in Ann Budd's Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns. I did the same garter stitch edging for the buttonbands and neckline from Meg Swansen's Cardigan Details video.

Sadly, I'm not loving it. The colors are meh. I did a half-assed job picking up the edging, particularly around the collar. The fit, however, is awesome.
