A package full of vintage buttons, purchased from this ebay seller.
Tea and cute biscuits. The cutters are from ikea and I used Smitten Kitchen’s brownie roll-out cookie recipe, sandwiched with sweetened ricotta. Yum!
Adorable, and practical, project bags from Loumms.I love the mismatched buttons (no zips to trap the yarn in) and that they come with a tiny matching lavender sachet.
Shaping worked into cables.
Actually printing photos, so far just this one of Gudrun, Connieand I that I printed to test some paper I found in the back of a drawer but now I think I need to print some more of my favourites. Spotting this on the shelf above my desk is definitely a cheery sight while I work.
Best of all, the sun just managed to peek out right at the end of the day.
The Wardie cardigan is worked in pieces from the bottom up. When the front and back are complete they're joined at the shoulders and then the sleeves are worked from stitches picked up around the armhole. The shoulders are shaped at the back, with neat cabled decreases and the bound off edge of the front pieces wraps over the shoulder to join the decreased edge. This style of shaping is known as English tailoring and gives a beautiful fit and a neat finish that's often found on high end ready to wear knitwear.
If you're interested in knitting Wardie but aren't sure about the finishing here's how the shoulders and sleeve go together.
