Week Ninety Eight

I finished the Incan Gold cardigan. Knit in Sundara Yarns Fingering Silky Merino.

I'm very happy with the way it has come out, it is light and drapey, just perfect as a layer over a sleeveless dress.

The buttons were in stash. A vintage amber glass. I would have liked to have had more than seven and spaced them closer together. Its an aesthetic decision rather than a functional one as I don't plan to ever wear this cardigan closed.

The cushion i finished a few weeks ago came back from upholstery. I chose red velvet backing and piping. 

I'm knitting a baby (boy) cardigan as a gift. This is Debbie Bliss Andes yarn (alpaca and silk) and the pattern is Boy-o-boy by Carol Scott. I will modify it to do the sleeves in pain reverse stockinette so I can pick up the stitches at the shoulder and knit down.

  1. The cardigan looks gorgeous. Such a good colour. Love the cushion - is that an Ehrman tapestry?
