Tangled Yoke Cardigan and other stuff

So, I finished the Tangled Yoke Cardigan last Wednesday. I have to say, I really love this sweater. The only thing I'm not satisfied with are the buttons and buttonholes. The buttons are not quite in the right places, so I may have to take them off and re-place them. Also, the buttonholes are a mite too large for the buttons I chose, so I will have to make them a touch smaller, somehow. Easy fixes, really. This cable is brilliant. Love. It.

In other knitting news, I have a dilemma regarding my Tilted Duster. Click on that link to see what it's supposed to look like. Then see below.Now, I will grant you that I am not pregnant anymore, as I was in this photo. But Jamie is now 15 months old, and the sweater still doesn't fit right. I think I needed more ease. The top just doesn't meet the way it's supposed to. So this is my dilemma: do I give it to a more willowy friend who may or may not want it or wear it? Or do I frog the entire thing and re-use the yarn?

Then I've got a pile of projects to think about. Andy's vest is about half done. I'm about to start a pair of socks for my grandmother, then I've promised hats to my daughter, my mom, and my aunt. Not to mention my entire Rav queue. I'd better start winding some yarn.

I've been looking at Tilted Dusters over on rav, I think yours looks ok, although I do know what it's like to have a sweater that just doesn't feel quite 'right'. I have a cardi in my projects and the sleeve head is too narrow for my arm, I will either have to give it to a skinny armed friend, or frog it!

You are so talented to make real-life, wearable sweaters like that. Honestly, I was happy to switch up some buttons on a cardigan that I bought the other day. You put my best efforts to shame.

Great blog!

you're a skinny minny so to find someone thinner is gonna be damned near impossible :p

I'm always so impressed with your kitted clothing - i still haven't made anything wearable. it scares me. Plus as a plus sized woman now it would take a crapload of yarn and I'm not that wealthy lol
