FO: Cascadas

I’m afraid this is the only  modeled shot of Cascadas you are going to get…

While she was finished in time for my weekend event (more on that tomorrow), it was too warm to wear her. But it’s ok… Dave ended up staying home because he hurt his back, so I had no photographer anyway.

So instead, when I got home, I slipped her on a hanger and here she is! I’m sure I’ve said it before, but I love round yokes. Not only are they fun and easy to knit, I think they are the most flattering style on me. There were many mods to this pattern (all for preference ,there this absolutely nothing wrong with the pattern as written), with the main one being that I made it a cardigan, not a tee. It’s also much shorter, stopping at the narrowest part of my waist. I was hoping to have at least 1/2 if not 3/4 sleeves, but alas, I didn’t have enough yarn. It’s no biggie though… it will be a nice spring/autumn piece.

Now to the buttons…

I should have dug through the stash, but Friday afternoon I was bored, so I drove down to my favourite button store on Ottawa Street in my old neighbourhood. These little greyish shell flowers were just perfect. (And several other buttons may have followed me home.)

With this done, I only have Dave’s birthday socks on the needles. But I’m not sure what to knit next. Normally, I’d been in full fair knitting mode right now, but I’m not entering the fair so… I can literally knit ANYTHING!

    Cascadas is beautiful and the color looks so good on you! It will be great to have that cardigan when the air conditioning is set at frigid or in the fall. Love the buttons. I am so impressed with the ways you alter patterns to make them work for you.
