Reverb !

After all my ranting I have to admit that after wet blocking with fabric conditioner, the yarn has transformed and blossomed into a decent velvety tweedy fabric. It actually feels very nice indeed.
I was not sure with the colour at first but now its really grown into me- summer-y and bright..
I had a struggle with the buttons- I bought expensive ceramic from the states and  a set of fancy painted wooden buttons only to settle for some cheap and nasty plastic buttons from John Lewis department store. I think they suit this cardi rather well.
I'm a bit aware of the collar but maybe it is just fussy me ..
All in all a great day to day cardigan :-)



  1. Gorgeous cardi, love the cables and the wool - must admit I'm a fan of scottish tweed - not as soft as some wools but probably will look good for longer! Great colour on you too, love it!

  2. I really think it looks so nice on you and I love the summery colour. :-)
