Baby Sweater

The baby/child aran cardigan is finished except for the buttons:


I tried to get a better picture of the cables, but I don’t think my camera wants to capture the details. Also, the colour is lighter than the picture — more of a hunter green than an evergreen. (I think — I’m horrible with colour names).

I might try to find some cute kid-like buttons, or some celtic-looking metal ones; or I might just go with the wooden ones I have.

But now I can turn my attention to the stockings; I’m currently swatching to see what happens to duplicate-stitch lettering when it’s felted. I don’t think I can take doing intarsia letters in the round, somehow.

Your sweater looks beautiful.. choosing buttons is important, I agree. The celtic button idea is cool too!
