The buttons were sourced from my stash, which makes me very happy. So much so that I want to go "beh, see?!" to those who don't have one.

One cardigan that I want to show is my black cardigan, knit in Skeinny Dipping Cannonball Sock according to a custom fit pattern. I managed to find the right buttons in my stash and I even added a sheep button purely for decorative reasons as per suggestion of a friend. A close up shot of that will follow.
I enjoyed a custom fit pattern a lot. It was a relief knitting to my own chosen gauge without having to worry if I really got it right. This is a plain cardigan, with a seed stitch border, but that's what a staple item is about. I have already been wearing this a lot and this reminds me to return to my Caulfield cardigan and to rework the neckline so that it also buttons up.

A quick shot of the two bandana cowls that I finished yesterday. December is so fastly paced that I might not get another shot before these are given away.
My friend with twin girls always admired my daughter's bandana cowl. And as we were trading some kids things, she asked if I would knit bandana cowls for her daughters. I did. Now let's hope the little ones like them.

My queue is down to 26 items, but I know I can do even better.

Lagamta and all that’s attached to it is taking up most of my time. Fb, Pinterest, Twitter, all need their time and I haven't been much of an online person until now apart from Ravelry, my Feedly reader and this blog. I'm joining the conversations out there more and more these days, which felt unnatural first, for an introvert like me.
The new year has started and I also want to review 2013. Fairisle did not happen. In fact, it was a fail. I started Ursula cardigan with such a joy, all my attention was consumed by it. I already envisaged how I was going to wear it, I adore the design, the wool, it seemed a perfect match. What I did not consider, was that this wasn’t a pattern for my body. With no shaping, it’d have turned to be a nice embroidered sack. I tried putting in some waist shaping, but it was not working. In short, I haven’t touched this project in months. I cannot bear the thought of ripping it out, but that’s what’ll have to be.
