So, I've finished the black simple cardigan I was knitting over Christmas, and I bought fabulous red vintage red buttons for it from Ebay for only £1. Red is a major part of my wardrobe,mainly due to it being a great colour on me, and when Amy reminded me of this, it was red buttons for this cardi all the way.
The other knitted item in the pic is a 'Where's Wally?' hat for my friend Marv. A mutual friend is having a 'Where's Wally?' themed party for his birthday on Thursday. Marv was wondering where he could find the perfect hat and came to me. Of course. I came home to find wool on my bed last night and I finished it at 1am this morning, introducing Chris to the wonders of pompom making.
Other things on my needles include a cropped grey cardi that uses horizontal cables as a design feature. I'm using Eunny's v. good tutorial. I aspire to her level of creativity and technical ability.
In other knitting news, remember this cardigan?Well, it's Arisaig from knitty.com but I was stupid and made it using cotton yarn instead of wool, the wrong weight yarn and I didn't block it before sewing it together. It does not look good on. So it's going to be unravelled and become this with the border of this. I shall accomplish this using a provisional cast on. I shall be using the excess yarn to make some sort of cropped cardigan with a matching lace border. Maybe something like this. But with more fitted sleeved and a half stockinette body.
