Crikey – another FO ! (smirk)

Here’s a photo S took of herself the moment she’d sewn on the buttons she bought for the cardigan I knitted for her:

I do not for a moment criticise her selfie: I’m unable to produce a selfie that doesn’t look as if I was falling over at the time.

The buttons are all identical: it’s just that the bottom two aren’t in the same fill-light that the top ones are ..

I am never going to knit in stocking stitch again. I have spoken.

    1. Thanks a lot, Amanda ! This was a real chore, and I’d never blocked anything before. But as far as I can tell from her selfie, it fits S just as it should. Hallelujah, brethren ! [grin]


    1. That means a lot to me, Michele – thanks from the heart ! Btw: you did note my info about having finally received your Minerva gift ?: it made me very happy. :)
      So your two Love Notes are to be worn by you and your significant other ? (what a vile phrase that is: so .. limited !


    1. This was the first completed garment I’d knitted since my last one for Chic, back around .. oh, 1981 ? I didn’t tell S that, and I didn’t let her pay me for the wool, until it was finished. I’m old now; and isolation has aged me by about 10 years ..

  1. He’s not as world-beatingly beautiful as Gibbs; but he is totally loved. Never had a cat with such personality ! He comes for walks with me, dashing ahead and looking back till I catch up .. If I didn’t have Boodie, I think I might have just faded away.

    Excellent cardigan, and a credit to the waistline in Sarah’s selfie. The ideal stylewise, and buttons too. Sympathy for the arthritic thumbs …

    Have you ever had a cat you reared to be a wild boy like this one? Another credit, plus for all the hugs and kisses you are receiving online. Best of luck for the haircut like the one you had when you married Chic.

    1. I can tell you now, Joce, that I am totally thrilled with the haircut. Having told me that my hair has changed its quality and is now kind of woolly (undeniable), she proceeded to achieve miracles. I HAVE SHORT HAIR AGAIN, HALLELUJAH !! XO


Go on - you can say it. :)
