A girl's cardi

Well, it is finally done.  I'm not exactly sure when I started my daughter's cardigan, it can't have been that long ago.  However it seems to get worked on in bits and pieces.  It was a bit mindless so I could do it while I watched a bit of tv.

The pattern and yarn were Stylecraft Brushstrokes DK, the yarn is Rose Blush.  It seemed to me like a quick spring project, and it was.  The only thing I really didn't like is the hem is garter stitch and oh how it curls.  I'm making another one for my other daughter and I will be doing a 1x1 rib instead.  Otherwise, it was fun to make my first ever pockets, and the variegation is nice too.  The girls picked out their own buttons, and wanted to be sure I included a picture.  So, button first, here they are:

 

I love the faces she makes whenever I take her picture


Rori didn't like being left out of the pictures

  4. I had to laugh - the faces your daughter pulls when you take her picture. Don't I know those faces, though? And my oldest grandson - about her age - he's the VERY worst. You'd think the kid was a little nuts. But then. He is. I think people who knit clothes are marvelous - my attention span doesn't allow. It has to be small if I knit, and have a face on it. Your cardi charms.

  8. Love it and the fact that your girls pick the colors and embellishments. These are fiberistas in training, me thinks.

  9. Aww she's adorable. The cardi a great colour on her.
    My son has reached this frustrating photo stage where he squints his eyes shut when he smiles. Then, if you ask him to open his eyes... he opens his mouth! ARGG
