Also, I got myself a pretty new camera with some gift cards I got for Christmas, so I have been snapping photos of everything. It's really fun- it's a mirrorless camera, so it's a bit like a small DSLR. It even has interchangeable lenses. It also makes a very satisfying snap when you take a picture. I might be a little bit in love. I might also be annoying my friends and husband a bit.
Here they are sitting on the cardigan. I love this sparkly yarn, it is really doing it for me. The sparkly/neon combo makes my heart so very happy.
I brought the buttons in to work to get Kate's opinion, and she pointed out that the flowers did kinda make it look a little juvenile. She was right, and both me and the cardigan are young enough looking as it is!
I am going to need to reinforce the edge of the buttonband, though. I put the buttons and holes right in the middle, and I probably should have put them closer into the body. Oh well, that's the beauty of crochet. Add a few solid, snug rows on the edge and it'll look great and avoid the dreaded wobbly band. I might also sew reinforcing stitches around the buttonholes. If I'm not too lazy.
Alright, I need to finish getting ready for work, and get my cardi packed up to work on the subway. Happy Tuesday!
