Day 29 ...



is FO 31! I finally finished up the purple cardigan. I dont think I love it as much as I should though as it looks a little wonky where I stitched the flowers onto it, which was an extremely annoying thing to do. If I ever knit this again I might just buy some pretty ribbon and sew that into place instead which would be much easier. Okay details are

Pattern: Little Petal Cardiefrom the fourth little Sublime hand knit book No. 617

Size: 2 - 3 years

Yarn: Bendigo Woollen Mills Allegro in a gorgeous purple color

1 heart button from stash

Sorry for the horrible photo but we are in the midst of a big thunderstorm with lightning and lots and lots of rain. At least the garden will get a lovely soaking, and the grass will be very green as I put my gray water on it today! Happy knitting!!

too pity that pic haven't been taken outside! Inside light really doesn't work for strong coloures!

It's a beautiful deep purple. I am sure it looks great when being worn. We are always hardest on ourselves.

The Cardi looks good & I like the band of flowers. Maybe a good blocking will even the bottom.
