cardigan update: with buttons!

So my sister visited over the long weekend and I was able to take a picture of the finished cardigan with the buttons on it.

Unfortunately, the buttons don’t photograph well but I love the way they look on the sweater. I was afraid of using anything that would look to homemade, or anything that would look too antique-y, and these are exactly the same color as the yarn and completely blend in unless you really try to notice them and then they are nice and shiny and pretty without being distracting or tacky.

finally! a knitting post!


So for a long time, I’ve been working on a knitting project, but it was a gift, so I didn’t want to spoil it too too much by ┬áposting about it prematurely. But it’s finished! And it’s been gifted! So I’m very pleased to present this finished product, and to finally tag a post on my blog in my knitting category. Long overdue!

The sweater is called Liesl, from Ysolda, and I started it through a class at Stitch DC. The class and instructor were both lovely, and I really enjoyed the experience. In terms of finishing the sweater however, I was still furiously knitting during her graduation ceremony… But I really love how it turned out. I used Karabella Windy (100% cotton) in blue, and it was great to work with, although everything I wore during the knitting process is now covered in blue fuzz.
