Peplum Cardigan

What are you most proud of? I needed to break in my new (used) Bernina and my new walking foot, and there's no better way to do this than to make something easy, casual, and highly rated! I'm probably the last one on earth to make this peplum cardigan. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I find myself feeling guilty if I'm not using all my "couture" skills and knowledge on a garment, or at least trying a new technique or improving a skill. I think we should be nice to ourselves and throw in an easy, quick, and non-muslin fitted garment once in a while, (or frequently!) just to keep our spirits, confidence, and motivation up. Knits can be a saving grace in those moments, for they are full of forgiveness and mercy if done properly using the right tools.
