I finished my pretty pink cardigan a week and a half ago, but managed to find the right buttons and sew them on last thursday. I brought it to the store and asked my friend Christine to take a few pictures of me with it. Turns out, the sun in my face didn't offer the best light, but it's still cute, I guess...

When I blogged about it last time, I said I wasn't sold on the composition of this yarn. Well, even after blocking, with a bit of conditionner and all, it's still a little itchy. Don't get me wrong, I love a good woolly yarn, but in this case, it's wool, alpaca and viscose, and I suspect that the wool part is a very rustic one. The colour is gorgeous though and it's still very wearable!
I somehow forgot to sew the cute little pocket, so maybe I'll take some better pictures soon when it's really done.
Here are some photos on a sewing model :
I really like how the yellow buttons match the little speckles in the tweed, even though we can't really see it in these photos.
The background for these mannequin shots is a brand new LYS/cafe established as a coop by my friends and I. It has kept me super busy for the past three months, but it's now coming along nicely and I'm so thrilled! I'll give you more info as soon as we're up and running.
