I spent a few lovely minutes last night sewing on the 5 shell flower shaped buttons and weaving in the ends on Little Man's (still no closer to choosing a name for him) new addition to his knitwear wardrobe.
I'd originally started this cardigan in the spring green colour but realised when I'd almost finished that one of the balls wasn't from the same dyelot. I tried to convince myself with both eyes squinted almost closed and in the light of a very low energy light bulb that you couldn't see the very obvious stripe of new colour running through the yoke of the cardigan, but who was I kidding? A very schoolboy error and something punishable only by ripping the whole thing back to the beginning. Better that than being cross with myself every time I saw him wearing it!
There's something quite cathartic about starting something again, albeit frustrating at the same time. However starting again was definitely the best decision as it meant a rethink of the colours to use. At the bottom of my DK stash I found some lovely Rowan Cashsoft in white and a soft grey which works really nicely with the pale green.
I expect he'll be sporting it soon as I've been fairly housebound since being discharged after the c-section just over a week ago and I'm itching for a nice pub lunch and a glass of something cold, dry and preferably produced in the Marlborough region of New Zealand!
I secretly tried my jeans on this morning and reckon I could suffer them in the name of fashion and sauvignon blanc!
