Blue Bunny and Red Cardigan

Some needlework for today. A rabbit embroidery in blue, and the left front of a cardigan in progress. This is in cotton, my first cardigan in cotton. It feels wonderfully soft.

Brown Cardigan

I know, I just made a brown cardigan, but I’m making another one. I think this one will have another color, too. Probably green.

Brown Shawl Collar Cardigan


I am starting a sleeve.


I am almost done with the second sleeve.

I have sewn in the pockets, sewn down the pocket hems, knitted the collar together and marked the position for the buttons. Did I mention I hate the sewing part? I really do. I hate the sewing part.

Since I have ample green yarn leftover, I am making another green sweater. This is a ladies small, close fitting ribbed sweater. The front and back look really narrow, but this is a pretty stretchy knit. I’m mixing it up a little with an ivory strip around the bottom of the sleeve which I tend to repeat in the collar. Stay tuned for more knitty knitty.
