The mushroom coloured yarn is then used as the background colour of the cardigan .......and I have added a little motif.....can you guess what they are?
They are cherries, I have included the cherries and the leaves in my knitted design, however the stalks will be added later, probably chain stitch embroidery.
On the fronts pieces I have included button-bands of spring green though I am not planning to add buttons as I have a special fastening at the neck that I hope to show you soon. I want the cardigan to be worn open as I am planning to make a little co-ordinating dress underneath which I am just designing at the moment.
What a beautiful week it has been, I spent the whole of yesterday in the garden. The Postie was off on holiday so we spent the day putting a new herb bed together and digging over our raised vegetable bed ready for planting. It was so warm that when the curly wurlies came home from school they had their tea 'al fresco' on the patio ...... bliss!
I have a busy weekend coming up, but hopefully will be able to show you the progress on the cardigan on Sunday, that is if I can move my tired legs off the sofa. I will be running a half marathon on Sunday morning and hoping that I can maintain or even beat my PB of 1:59:50, so let's see!
If you have the time over the weekend, please pop over to this beautiful blog Sew Sweet Violet, as Jooles is running a delightful giveaway! Though I'm hoping that I win!
Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine.
Goodbye for now,
