Cardigans

photoWell, I’ve finally done it.

I knitted a piece of clothing that really counts as clothing… because my brain suggests that mittens, hats, socks and scarves don’t really count.

Just don’t argue with the brain. It’s not really worth it.

Anyway, this cute little number will fit my goddaughter for all of five minutes, but she seems to love it for now. In fact I made the mistake of showing it to her before I put the buttons on and it took me weeks, and her mother’s determination for it to have buttons, to get it back in order to attach them.

This was most definitely a labour of love because I made several rather frustrating errors when I started that saw a few hours’ worth of working being ripped and redone.

Twice.

  1. Very cute and what a lucky god-daughter. The worst part about knitting “real” clothing is all the finishing. It never occurred to me to simply leave the buttons off for a while!

    1. Oh absolutely – when the buttons aren’t integral, no hurry, I figure! The only other finishing this required was sewing down the collar.
