Completed - Cardigan for my mum


Finally, another non-selfish knitting project!


This is kind of an old knit now, but I made my mum a cardigan for Mother's Day.
I love the cables up the fronts and the back!

It fits mum but probably could be a little bigger.  But it was because I ran out of yarn!  I don't know why I didn't buy enough.  I ran out before I got to the button bands.  So I had to do some creative shortening of the sleeves (which turned out ok because they were too long anyway), and undid my swatches, and ALSO had to cut off all my long tails and use them too!  The button bands are not quite as wide as I'd like but they do the job.

That was a very stressful evening.  But done phew!  I ended up having to seam it with some different yarn, which was not quite the same colour.  Oh well you can't tell!

I do love Amy Herzog's pattern!  It was a fun interesting knit :-)
One reason why this took so long to write is that Blogger was being weird!
