Finally, an FO photo of this one.
Vintage “Pink” Cardigan
Pattern: Interweave Knits, Spring 2005, by Norah Gaughan
Yarn: Rowan Wool Cotton, 9 skeins
Vintage mother of pearl buttons from ebay
A loooong time coming. The buttons kept popping out of the holes so I decided to just sew them in, starting at the top – once I got a little ways in, I decided that I since I usually wear cardigans at least partly open, I’d leave the rest. I kinda like how it looks buttoned only at the top! I split the yarn and used two plies to sew the buttons on with.
I really love the front edging, but the cabled edge does roll a bit. Needs another blocking, maybe. The buttons are vintage, from some ebay seller that Alexandra told me about – I love them, but they’re a bit too small and thin for this particular sweater; hence, the popping out of the buttonholes.
I really, really like this yarn. It’s awesome – light and comfortable, stretchy, lots of yardage. I’d definitely use it again. I think I got this bag from Jeanette on ebay for a good price.
Thanks for all the condolences on the loss of my bike. I did file a police report but of course, I don’t expect to get my bike back or anything. It turns out that the guy actually abandoned his own bike in front of my house! The good part of the police actually coming to the house (rather than over the phone) was that they could take that away. It was probably stolen, anyway.
Here’s a photo of me and my bike (and my turtleneck shrug) from last year.
