Pit stop

I have a finished object!!

The tab button top was finished a while ago but I haven't had time to show her off in blog land. In reality, I haven't stopped wearing the cardigan. It's gorgeous. It was quick and easy - mindless stocking stitch yes, but a well constructed design. Just what I needed after 2 projects going wrong.

I found a lovely button at my local yarn shop, a perfect match. (I had help - thanks Karin!!)

It wasn't all stocking stitch!!

I'm juggling too many balls at the moment and my blog is suffering as a result. There has been very little knitting going on - to my sadness...... I did not finish the cable and bobble cardigan on time. I just have the sleeves to do and am half way up one . I had been focusing solely on this project but life has a habit a interrupting good intentions and serious knitting marathons. Just a couple of weeks more of chaos and I'm hoping to be back to normal.

Tap top looks great and I can assure everybody that it looks great on you.
Hopefully I'll see you later and I can touch the lovely bobble cardie.

Beautiful work!! I totally understand about the life/chaos thing. Hope you get some more time for your knitting and blogging soon!

It's lovely. I was put off this as it looked a like a low scoop neck, and I thought I might be fiddling with it when worn, but if you say it wears well, then it might be another one on the to-do list!

Your cardigan looks really beautiful and I love the color too.
