Chambray



Finished sewing on the buttons

and have been wearing my new sweater

the past several days.


The weather has been pretty darn cold and

my Chambray Cardi sure is keeping me toasty warm.


I am so tickled that I've knit two sweaters that actually fits me.

Now am eager to cast on another

right away as soon as my Stitch Surfer sox are off the needle.

 

hugs

  2. Your cardigan turned out great! The fit is perfect and I love the combination of the yarn and pattern. There's nothing better than wearing a cozy, hand knit sweater on a snowy day :)
