Hooray to Kimberly for recognizing the Corset. It is still damp, so today I'll present a different FO. Plus I've got the flu, I'm not modeling anything. I did manage to finish my two new red sleeves while I was laying around yesterday. But today isn't about red sleeves, it's about a pretty little cardigan.
Buttons be damned. I'm calling this puppy done.
Pattern: Sirdar Double Knitting Cardigan #1518, purchased at a LYS. Size 1-2 years
Yarn: Sirdar Snuggly, 3 balls
Needles: US 6 straights and US 3 straights
Modifications: surprisingly none, I knit this as written
Review: I just loved this pattern. I knit it months ago and have been searching for buttons ever since. As you can see I still don't have buttons, but I'm crediting this as a 2005 knit. The yarn was acrylic, but very very soft. It was my first foray into dk yarn and I loved how it looked. I like the subtle flecks of purple on the white. Being acrylic there was no real blocking, but I think it turned out alright.
This was my first big cabling project, and I found cables to be big fun, so much fun I went on to knit the blue afghan.
Upon initial completion Bird wasn't so sure about this sweater.
I think she has since reconsidered her position concerning the wearability of this sweater.
I'm toying with the idea of making a matching one for Pork Chop and then a solid blue that compliments the purple for Meaty. Then I can dress them all alike and parade them around town, and take their pictures and blackmail them with said pictures when they are older. I'm just doing what any good mother would do right?
