So earlier this year I knitted myself a cardigan. It went well but I wasn't sure about the colour and then my Mum saw it so it found another home. But I still wanted a cardigan, and with a new job coming up and a little time off I suddenly had some time to have another go.
This time I used King Cole Glitz Chunky in platinum. It's a lovely light grey with silver flecks and it's really soft. Going up from Aran to Chunky made the cardigan a little bigger too, which I love.
At the last Thread festival at the Farnham Maltings I had come across some beautiful butterfly buttons by Kate Holliday. They are ceramic with butterflies printed? on them. They are so wonderful I bought 8 with this cardigan project in mind.
While I was happy with the purple cardigan, I absolutely LOVE this one. Its exactly what I was aiming for and it's soft, warm and comfortable and will look great over a dress or jeans. I am so glad I had another go.
