This weekend was absolutely perfect sweater weather. It was cold, clear & dry. On Saturday I went out and about in my Girly Man sweater, which kept me nice and cozy.
(excuse the wet hair... I haven't used a hair dryer since Jr. High)
And on Sunday I wore my newly finished Lorna's Laces Everyday Cardigan. I used the blue-green buttons, rather than the purple ones, but unfortunately they're a bit too small, and they tend to spontaneously unbutton themselves.
It fits well, but is shorter than I would have liked. I actually haven't blocked it since seaming it (I was impatient to wear it). But when I do block it, I'll futz with the button holes to see if I can get them a bit tighter, and I'll stretch it a bit to see if I can get an extra inch of length out of it.
I'm still ambivilant about the color. It's a lot lighter & brighter than I thought it would be when I bought it. So I was thinking about over dying it with a medium blue color to try to darken it all up again. But I don't know. I like the contrast between the blues and purple, I just don't like the bright green. Oh well. I think I'll wear it for a while and see if it grows on me. It's very warm & fuzzy. As the temperature drops, I'm all about the wool sweaters!!
