New Sample Cardigan

Finally! Tweedie is complete and on display. This is a chunky yarn by Sirdar, a mixture of wool, alpaca and acrylic, surprisingly lightweight but with the feel of a pure fibre. Unfortunately, a picture never quite does justice to the real colour of the yarn.

Sometimes a knitter's eyes are too big, and that is what happened with this project. I put the cardigan aside for just a bit and found smaller projects that were inspiring me. Its hard to get back into the rhythm of the original knitting when too much time passes.
Today, the hardest decision was which button to finish it off with. I chose a handmade wooden button in tiger oak, it picks up the golden hued tweed nubbies in the yarn. Some of these buttons would have worked just as nicely.
