Mustard Seed Cardigan Complete


How about these self portraits?  I think I am getting more creative in my old age.  As you can see by the buttons some of these photos were taken in the mirror.  Took me a bit to realize the image would be reversed  (snicker)



Well I am super pleased as punch with the sweater!!  These photos are before blocking because I was too darn excited to wait another couple of days while it dried.  So I am 100% sure that the button bands will lay nicely because I will block it into obedience..


I am so glad that I did rip out the first attempt because the fit is absolutely perfect.  I think if you are interested in a top down cardigan that is relatively easy to knit in worsted weight yarn you should give the Tea Leaves Cardigan a try

  7. PERFECT!!! It looks just wonderful on you! I've had tea leaves on my to-do list for a long time, but I very rarely knit with worsted yarn; I might have to reconsider. I think Peasy is going to have a similiar look in dk--just hope mine looks 1/2 as good as yours!

  11. Oh look at it! It's beautiful! I'm so glad the second try turned out exactly the way you wanted it!

    I am definitely going to have to give that a try...I have a bunch of deep purple wool I don't remember ordering (or rather - I don't remember what I ordered it for...) & I think it might be the perfect fit for this sweater... xo
