WIP Wednesday

I apologise for the terrible pictures in this post, but I've been at work all day and only got round to taking them this evening, while the boys were watching Abney and Teal on Cbeebies. I was also already wearing my pyjamas... ahem. 

So yeah, not the perfect photoshoot, but at least there is an update, right? RIGHT?  ;)

Anyway, this is the view from the back, just to show what the yoke section looks like:

And this is the view from the front. Again, the yoke section, because, well, the mirror was a bit too high to show the rest of it. 

So what you can't see here is that I've finished the body and have started knitting the sleeves. I've finished about a quarter of the first sleeve, but the last couple of days I've had a really bad kink in my neck and it impacts on how much I can knit in the evening. Still, it's good progress and I can't wait to wear the cardi! 

What buttons does it want, though? Will need to ponder this...


  1. Its looking good, looking forward to seeing the finished result. Love the colour.

  2. Great progress. I think it would look great with some pale wooden buttons (or some handmade ceramic ones)

  3. looking great!.....and it will be DONE in time for the fall chill!!! YAY!

  4. I love it! What pattern is that? lovely color!!

  5. Eeeek you've overtaken me!! I need to do some speed knitting...

  6. I concur with Catherine. This yarn is tweedy, like organic. Wooden buttons would look good with it.
