What do the cool kids do on the first day of the holidays?
I got very excited yesterday morning when the postman brought me a package of buttons and ribbon that I needed to finish off the cardigan I’ve been making for ever. (Alright, slight exaggeration, but I cast on in the car somewhere on the M6 as we drove to Oban at the beginning of halfterm, and the knitting was about half done by the end of that holiday, but then I let it go in favour of other projects…)
Pattern is Deco by the uber-talented Kate Davies. I dyed the wool myself, back on a rainy weekend in November (and sported turquoise hands for a week…) which accounts for the colour variation.
I agreed to model it. OMG, that’s multiple photos of me on the wrong side of a camera this year. I’m even wearing a dress too. Who knew that could happen? Big Daughter criticised my footwear. I see she’s cut my feet out of the photo to make her point.
Button and trim detail.
I really hate sewing.
Of course, even in a grey Derbyshire July, it’s too warm for wool, so it’s going away until cool Autumn days.
