Finished things.

It’s the time of finished things at the moment, or so it seems – I finished the gold band weaving this morning, and now I have a bit more than a metre of band. It was really fun to weave, and I am thinking of doing some more of it and maybe even sticking it in the shop…

I also did get some nice buttons for my Vignette a few days ago, and I’ve since finished the cardigan. Finally! So here’s a quickly snapped photo of the thing in action:


It’s not perfect, but it fits nicely, I like the sleeve length, and overall I’m quite happy with it. Also… there needs to be room for improvement after a first non-sock, non-hat garment, right?

  1. I love the colors in the cardigan, and any errors are at least unobtrusive.

    The cardigan looks great, but I would rethink the buttons. With buttons in such a strong contrasting colour, they should be placed in a way that looks the same for all of them. In this picture it seems as if you’ve put the top ones at the outer edge of the button band and the lower ones at the inner edge. Or does it just need a second blocking to even out a bit more?

    I don’t want to nag, but your other work is always so perfect that after the initial happiness with the finished cardigan, this will probably bother you later on.

      Ah, the buttons… the top ones probably just need to be sewn on a bit more tighter, they are actually all placed in the same line.

      And I am quite sure you are overestimating my levels of perfection. Yes, there are things that I do try hard to get right down to the last detail, such as stuff for archaeological experiments. But other things? For a lot of these, as long as it does what it’s supposed to do, I’m fine. If there were a contest for “Queen of Fudging It”, I’d totally be in, and I’d give myself good chances of placing well, if not winning!
